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 November 28, 2011.

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 and certain federal agencies have taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the US 101/Broadway Interchange Reconstruction Project in the State of California. The project will construct a new seven-lane Broadway overcrossing approximately 170 feet to the north of the existing four-lane structure in the City of Burlingame, County of San Mateo. The purpose of the project is to improve traffic movements and access around the interchange, accommodate future traffic increases at adjacent intersections, improve operations at the southbound US 101 ramps, and increase bicyclist and pedestrian access. The project length is 0.76 mile, and construction is anticipated to take 2 to 2.5 years. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the Initial Study with Mitigated Negative Declaration/Environmental Assessment (IS/EA) for the project, approved on March 18, 2011, in the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) issued on March 18, 2011, and in other documents in the FHWA project records. The IS/EA, FONSI, and other project records are available by contacting Caltrans at the address provided above. The Caltrans IS/EA and FONSI can be viewed and downloaded from the project Web site at http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist4/documents/101_broadway_interch/ea_235840_101bdwy_fed_1_front_matter_thru_chapter_6.pdf.
