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 Interstate 15 from Cajalco Road, Post Mile (PM) 36.8 
to State Route 60 (SR-60) PM 51.4 through the cities of Corona, Norco, 
Eastvale, and Jurupa Valley, and portions of incorporated Riverside 
County, 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 November 
14, 2016. If the Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim 
provides a time period of less

[[Page 39747]]

than 150 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time period 
still applies.

Environmental Planner, California Department of Transportation District 
8, Division of Environmental Planning, 464 West 4th Street, 6th Floor, 
MS 827, San Bernardino, California, 92401-1400, during normal business

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 following 
highway project in the State of California: Construction of one or two 
tolled express lanes in each direction on I-15 in Riverside County 
between PM 36.8 and PM 51.4. Sign improvements would also be made to 
inform and guide users of the new tolled express lanes. Advanced 
signage is required to be posted at a minimum of two miles prior to the 
start of the tolled express lanes. The project limits for the signage 
extend from PM 34.7 in Riverside County to PM 1.3 in San Bernardino 
County. The Build Alternative would specifically provide one tolled 
express lane in each direction from Cajalco Road to Hidden Valley 
Parkway, provide two tolled express lanes in each direction from Hidden 
Valley Parkway northbound and Second Street southbound (Norco) to Cantu 
Galleano Ranch Road (Eastvale/Jurupa Valley), and construct one tolled 
express lane in each direction from Cantu Galleano Ranch Road 
(Eastvale/Jurupa Valley) to SR-60, with isolated outside widening at 
Riverside Avenue to maintain lane balance for the SR-60 West Bound loop 
connector.
    The total length of the express lanes is approximately 14.6 miles. 
The purpose of the I-15 Express Lanes Project is to improve existing 
and future traffic operations and mainline travel times, expand travel 
choice, increase travel time reliability, and expand tolled express 
lane network. The lane improvements are located within Riverside 
County, California, and from south to north run through the cities of 
Corona, Norco, Eastvale, and Jurupa Valley and portions of 
unincorporated Riverside County.

actions were taken, are described in the Environmental Assessment (EA)
