Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed SR-126 
(Memorial Boulevard) Improvement Project in Tennessee

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of limitation on claims for Judicial Review of actions 
by FHWA and other Federal agencies.

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

[[Page 40120]]

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by FHWA and other Federal 
agencies that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The 
actions relate to a proposed highway project, State Route (SR) 126 
(Memorial Boulevard) Improvements, from East Center Street to 
Interstate 81 (I-81) in Sullivan County, Tennessee. Those actions grant 
licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.

DATES: By this notice, FHWA is advising the public of final agency 
actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). A claim seeking judicial review 
of the Federal agency actions on the highway project will be barred 
unless the claim is filed on or before December 10, 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.

Planning and Program Management Team Leader; Federal Highway 
Administration; Tennessee Division Office; 404 BNA Drive, Building 200,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that FHWA and other 
Federal agencies have taken final agency actions by issuing licenses, 
permits, and approvals for the following highway project in the State 
of Tennessee: SR 126 (Memorial Boulevard) Improvements, Project Number 
STP-126(10), Sullivan County, Tennessee. The proposed action will 
improve 8.4 miles of SR 126 (Memorial Boulevard), from East Center 
Street, within the City of Kingsport's city limits, east to I-81 in 
Sullivan County, Tennessee. The Selected Alternative (Alternative B 
Modified) proposes four travel lanes from East Center Street to Harbor 
Chapel Road, three travel lanes from Harbor Chapel Road to Old Stage 
Road, and two travel lanes from Old Stage Road to I-81. Portions of the 
corridor include (1) an additional eastbound travel lane to accommodate 
trucks ascending the steep grade; (2) a continuous, left-turn lane; and 
(3) a compressed roadway cross-section width to minimize impacts to a 
National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) listed resource. The 
actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions 
were taken, are described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement 
(FEIS) for the project, approved on November 19, 2014; in the FHWA 
Record of Decision (ROD) issued on April 8, 2015, and in other 
documents in the FHWA administrative record. The FEIS, ROD, and other
