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 bridge widening 
and rehabilitation project, the North Spring Street Viaduct Widening 
and Rehabilitation in the County of Los Angeles, 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 February 
27, 2012. 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: Ollie Jackson, Senior Environmental 
Planner, Caltrans, District 7, Division of Environmental Planning, 100 
South Main Street, Suite 100, Los Angeles, CA 90012-3712, (213) 897-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective July 1, 2007, the Federal Highway 
Administration (FHWA) assigned, and the California Department of 
Transportation (Caltrans) assumed, environmental responsibilities for 
this project pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Notice is hereby given that 
Caltrans have 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 City of Los Angeles in 
cooperation with Caltrans proposes improvements and rehabilitation to 
the existing North Spring Viaduct and its adjoining roadways. The 
proposed project area is situated northeast of downtown Los Angeles in 
an area that includes residential, commercial, industrial, and open 
space land uses. The proposed project area straddles portions of the 
Central City North and Northeast Los Angeles Community Planning areas. 
Regional transportation facilities in the area include interstate 110 
(I-110), Interstate 5 (I-5), and State Route 101 (SR-101). Completing 
the project would correct existing geometrical and design deficiencies, 
and to address seismic vulnerability issues in order to increase the 
viaduct's SR to a minimum of 80. An additional purpose of the project 
is to improve bicycle and pedestrian circulation and safety across the 
river and railroad tracks. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the 
laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Finding 
of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the project, approved on June 30, 
2011. The FONSI and other project records are available by
