California

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by the FHWA pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 139 and other Federal agencies.

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to announce 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 new freeway 
project: Mid County Parkway (MCP) that will be located in western 
Riverside County, State of California. Those actions grant licenses, 
permits, and approvals for the project.

actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139 (l)(1). A claim seeking judicial 
review of the Federal agency actions on the new freeway project will be 
barred unless the claim is filed on or before January 25, 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.

Project are evaluated and described in the Final Environmental Impact 
Report (EIR)/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), a joint document 
pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act and the National 
Environmental Policy Act. Key issues identified in the Final EIR/EIS 
include impacts to community character and cohesion, growth-related 
effects, biological resources, aquatic resources, cultural resources, 
aesthetics, residential relocations, business relocations, traffic 
noise, and temporary construction effects. Measures to avoid, minimize, 
and mitigate adverse environmental effects are included in the 
Environmental Commitments Record in the Final EIR/EIS. The Final EIR/
EIS identified Alternative 9 Modified with the San Jacinto River Bridge 
Design Variation and the Base Case Alignment through the City of San 
Jacinto, and, as further refined, to avoid the permanent incorporation 
of land from the San Jacinto Wildlife Area, as the preferred 
alternative.
    The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such 
actions were taken, are described in the Final EIR/EIS for the project, 
approved on April 15, 2015, in the FHWA Record of Decision (ROD) issued
