SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to 
announce actions taken by Caltrans, and USACE that are final within the 
meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed 
highway project at the Genesee Avenue Interchange on Interstate 5 (I-5) 
in the City and County of San Diego, 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 January 
14, 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.

project in the State of California: The I-5/Genesee Avenue Interchange

higher to accommodate possible future widening of I-5; widening of IC 
ramps; widening of ramps at Sorrento Valley Road (the next IC to 
north); construction of auxiliary lanes; replacement of Voigt Drive OC 
(the next OC to south); realignment of a portion of nearby Gilman 
Drive; installation of new ramp meters; and, construction of a bicycle 
path along I-5. The project is located in the City and County of San 
Diego and project length along I-5 is a total of approximately three 
(3) kilometers [two (2) miles]. The actions by the Federal agencies,

records are available by contacting Caltrans at the address provided 
above. The Caltrans EA and FONSI can be viewed and downloaded from the
