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 other Federal agencies.

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to 
announce actions taken by Caltrans, that are final within the meaning 
of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway 
project on northbound Interstate 680 from south of State Route (SR) 237 
(Calaveras Boulevard) to north of SR 84 (Vallecitos Road) in or near 
the cities of Milpitas, Fremont, and Pleasanton, and the community of 
Sunol in Santa Clara and Alameda Counties 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 
January 19, 2016. 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.

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 has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1)

proposes an approximately 15-mile HOV/express lane from south of SR 237 
(post mile 6.5) in Santa Clara County to north of SR 84 (post mile 
12.4) in Alameda County. The HOV/express lane would be a specially-
designated freeway lane that is free for carpools and other eligible 
users, but also gives single-occupancy-vehicles the option to pay tolls 
to use the HOV/express lane. The actions by the Federal agencies, and 
the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the
