Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway 
Project in Wisconsin

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by FHWA and other Federal Agencies.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA and other 
Federal Agencies that are final within the

[[Page 23068]]

meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to the Wisconsin 
(WIS) 164 reconditioning project from County Trunk Highway (CTH) Q to 
CTH E in Washington County, Wisconsin. Those actions grant approvals 
for the project.

DATES: By this notice, the FHWA is advising the public of final agency 
actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). Claims seeking judicial review 
of the Federal agency actions on the highway project will be barred 
unless the claim is filed on or before September 21, 2015. If the 
Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time 
period of less than 150 days for filing such claim, then that shorter 
time period still applies.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: George Poirier, Division 
Administrator, FHWA, 525 Junction Road, Suite 8000, Madison, Wisconsin 
53717; telephone: (608) 829-7500. The FHWA Wisconsin Division's normal 
office hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. central time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that FHWA and other 
Federal agencies have taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 
139(l)(1) by issuing approvals for the following highway project: WIS 
164 reconditioning from CTH Q to CTH E in Washington County, Wisconsin. 
The purpose of the project is to address poor pavement condition, 
safety, traffic flow, and to provide adequate bicycle facilities. The 
project will recondition WIS 164 by milling and resurfacing the 
existing roadway, widening the roadway to meet desirable lane and 
shoulder widths, including bicycle accommodations on the paved 
shoulder, and correcting steep side slopes. The project will also 
incorporate spot safety and geometric improvements which include the 
following reconstruction activities: Cutting hill crests, reducing 
profile grades, and reconstructing intersections to a better type and 
location. Of the 7.5 mile overall project length, approximately 5.1 
miles of WIS 164 will be reconditioned and approximately 2.4 miles will 
be reconstructed. To the extent practicable, the proposed WIS 164 
improvements avoid and minimize impacts to the natural, cultural, and 
built environment.
    The actions by the Federal agencies on this project, and the laws 
under which such actions were taken, are described in the approved 
Categorical Exclusion (Wisconsin Department of Transportation Final 
Environmental Report), and in other documents in the FHWA 
administrative record. The Categorical Exclusion (CE) was approved by 
FHWA on April 10, 2015.
    The CE and other documents in the administrative record are 
available by contacting FHWA at the address provided above. The CE can 
be downloaded from the project Web site at http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/projects/seregion/164/index.htm, or viewed at the
