Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Bridge and 
Approach Roadways in Nevada and Arizona

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by FHWA, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and Other Federal 
Agencies.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA, USFWS, and 
other Federal agencies that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 
139(I)(1). The actions relate to the proposed Laughlin-Bullhead City 
Bridge project in Laughlin, Clark County, Nevada; and in Bullhead City, 
Mohave County, Arizona. 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(l)(1). A claim seeking judicial review 
of the Federal agency actions on the bridge and roadway 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 less than 180 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time 
period still applies.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the FHWA, USFWS,

23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the 
following bridge and roadway project in Clark County in the State of 
Nevada and in Mohave County in the State of Arizona. The proposed 
project would involve the construction of a new bridge (two general-
purpose lanes in each direction and a multi-use pathway) over the 
Colorado River. In addition to the new bridge, the proposed project 
includes construction of a new intersection at Needles Highway and a 
four-lane approach roadway (two general-purpose lanes in each direction 
and a multi-use pathway) from Needles Highway in Laughlin, Clark 
County, Nevada (the west end) to the extension of Bullhead Parkway west 
of State Route (SR) 95 in Bullhead City, Mohave County, Arizona (the
