Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions of Proposed Highway in 
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 (Interstate 405 [I-405]) from Interstate 
5 (I-5) to State Route 55 [SR-55]) in the Cities of Irvine and Costa 
Mesa, in the County of Orange, 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 April 26, 
2019. 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 applies.
