Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway in 
California

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), pursuant to 
23 U.S.C. 327.

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

SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to 
announce actions taken by Caltrans that are final within the meaning of 
23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed State Route 99/
State Route 219 (Kiernan Avenue) interchange in the community of Salida 
in Stanislaus County, in the 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 December 
18, 2011. If the 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 time period still applies.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gail Miller, Senior Environmental 
Planner, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), 2015 East 
Shields Avenue, Suite 100, Fresno, CA 93726; weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
(Pacific time); telephone (559) 243-8274, e-mail: gail_miller@dot.ca.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, the FHWA assigned, 
and Caltrans assumed environmental responsibilities for this project 
pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that the Caltrans has 
taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing 
licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in 
the State of California: The State Route 99/State Route 219 (Kiernan 
Avenue) Interchange project in the community of Salida in Stanislaus 
County, California. The purpose of the project is to reduce delay and 
avoid traffic backup in the State Route 99/State Route 219 (Kiernan 
Avenue) interchange area, improve traffic operations and reduce traffic 
congestion at the State Route 99/State Route 219 (Kiernan Avenue) 
interchange. This would be accomplished by rebuilding the State Route 
99/State Route 219 (Kiernan Avenue) interchange, adding four additional 
travel lanes to State Route 219 (Kiernan Avenue) within the project 
limits, and changing the existing interchange on- and off-ramps to and 
from State Route 99. An auxiliary lane would be added in both 
directions on State Route 99 between State Route 219 (Kiernan Avenue) 
and Pelandale Avenue.
    The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such 
actions were taken, are described in the Environmental Assessment (EA)/
Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the project, approved on 
May 25, 2011. The EA/FONSI and other documents are available by 
contacting Caltrans at the addresses provided above.
