California

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

ACTION: Notice of limitation on claims for judicial review of actions 
by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to 
announce actions taken by Caltrans, that are final. The actions relate 
to a proposed highway project, widening of State Route 70 in the County 
of Butte, 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 [Insert 
date 150 days after publication in the Federal Register]. 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
