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

County in the State of Nevada. Those actions grant licenses, permits, 
and approvals for the project.

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