AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice of limitation on claims for judicial review of actions

SUMMARY: This notice announces final actions taken by the FHWA. The

actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). A claim seeking judicial review 
of FHWA actions on the JAI Project will be barred unless the claim is 
filed on or before December 27, 2018. 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.
