ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by FHWA.


SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA that are final

proposed highway project on the Parks Highway from Lucus Road to Big 
Lake Road, in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, State of Alaska. Those 
actions grant approval for the project.

Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time 
period of less than 180 days for filing such claim, then that shorter
