Federal Highway Administration

Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions of Proposed Highway/
Interchange Improvement in California; Statute of Limitations on Claims

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. The actions relate 
to the proposed highway project, Alameda Creek Bridge Replacement 
Project on State Route 84 (SR-84) between the City of Fremont and the 
town of Sunol in southern Alameda County, 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 April 13, 
2018. If the Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim 
provides a time period of less than 150 days for filing such claim, 
then that shorter time period still applies.

Environmental Branch Chief, Office of Environmental Analysis, 
California Department of Transportation--District 4, 111 Grand Avenue, 
Oakland, California, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., (510) 286-6025,

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, 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. Caltrans proposes to replace the 
Alameda Creek Bridge and realign the bridge approaches on SR-84 from 
postmile 13.0 to 13.6. The project would replace the existing 1928, 
two-lane bridge with a new, two-lane structure with standard eight-foot 
wide shoulders, approximately 75 feet north of the existing bridge. The 
purpose of this project is to correct structural and geometric 
deficiencies of the Alameda Creek Bridge and its approaches while 
providing a facility that meets driver expectations of SR-84's 
operating speed, all of which improve safety. The actions by the 
Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are 
described in the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR)/Environmental 
Assessment (EA) for the project, approved on September 25, 2017, and in 
the Caltrans Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) issued on August 
16, 2017, and in other documents in the Caltrans project records. The 
Final EIR/EA, FONSI, and other project records are available by 
contacting Caltrans at the address provided above. The Caltrans Final 
EIR/EA and FONSI can be viewed and downloaded from the project Web site
