SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to announce actions taken by Caltrans, and other Federal agencies, that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to proposed highway improvements in Santa Clara County at the connection of the State Route 17, Interstate 280 and Interstate 880 freeways in the City of San Jose, Santa Clara County, State of

California. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the project.

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 28, 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.
