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 project to 
replace the Mt. Vernon Avenue Bridge (State Bridge No. 54C-0066) over 
the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad facilities in the City 
of San Bernardino, County of San Bernardino, 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 January 
29, 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.

has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by 
issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the following local 
assistance project in the State of California: The project will involve

four 3.7-m (12-foot) lanes (two in each direction), a 1.2-m (4-foot)-
wide median, and 2.4-m (8-foot)-wide shoulders. Sidewalks on each side 
of the new bridge would be 1.5 m (5 feet) wide and would meet ADA

existing access directly from the bridge to the Santa Fe Depot and 
Metrolink Station. Concrete barrier railings (1.1 m [3.5 feet] high) 
topped with fencing (1.9 m [6.1 feet] high) would be provided on each
