Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway in 
Tennessee Improvement Project in Tennessee

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of limitation on claims for judicial review of actions 
by FHWA and other Federal agencies.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA and other 
Federal agencies that are final within the meaning of U.S.C. 139(I)(1). 
The actions relate to a proposed highway project, State Route (SR) 162 
(Pellissippi Parkway Extension) Improvements, from SR 33 (Old Knoxville 
Highway) to US 321/SR 73 (Lamar Alexander Parkway) in Blount County, 
Tennessee. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the 
project.

DATES: By this notice, the FHWA is advising the public of final agency 
actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(I)(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 February 9, 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.
