Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway in 
California

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), pursuant to 
23 U.S.C. 327, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS).

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to 
announce actions taken by Caltrans and USFWS that are final within the 
meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed 
highway project on State Route 152 near the City of Gilroy in Santa 
Clara County in the State of California. Those actions grant licenses, 
permits, and approvals for the project.

DATES: By this notice, the FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, 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 
11, 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: For Caltrans: Eric DeNardo, Associate 
Environmental Planner, 111 Grand Ave. MS-8B Oakland, CA 94612, 7:30 
a.m.-5:15 p.m., (510) 286-5645, eric.denardo@dot.ca.gov. For USFWS: 
Jerry Roe, Caltrans Liaison, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 28000 
Cottage Way Sacramento, CA 95825, (916) 414-6600, jerry_roe@fws.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, the Federal Highway 
Administration (FHWA) assigned, and the California Department of 
Transportation (Caltrans) assumed, environmental responsibilities for 
this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that 
Caltrans, and USFWS have taken final agency actions subject to 23 
U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the 
State Route (SR) 152 Shoulder Widening project in the State of 
California. The project would improve roadway safety along SR 152 from 
0.6 miles west of Prunedale Avenue to 0.24 miles east of Prunedale 
Avenue east of the City of Gilroy, in unincorporated Santa Clara 
County. All shoulders less than 8 feet wide would be widened to 
standard 8-foot shoulders, with rumble strip placement within both 
shoulders and median. The existing drainage ditch on the westbound 
shoulder of SR 152 would be improved by relocating it further from the 
roadway and reconstructing it to have less steep slopes. The actions by 
the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, 
are described in the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the project, 
approved on June 24, 2015 in the FHWA Findings of No Significant Impact 
(FONSI) issued on June 24, 2015, and in other documents in Caltrans' 
project records. The EA, FONSI, and other project records are available 
by contacting Caltrans at the addresses provided above. The Caltrans EA 
and FONSI can be viewed and downloaded from the project Web site at 
http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist4/envdocs.htm, or viewed at public libraries 
in the project area. The USFWS decision and Biological Opinion are
