auxiliary lanes at certain locations along US 41 northbound and 
southbound from Memorial Drive to County M, The project will also 
reconstruct I-43 from US 41 to Atkinson Drive and reconstruct the Velp 
Avenue, I-43, and County M interchanges. The I-43/US 41 interchange 
will be reconstructed as a System Interchange with directional ramps 
and will include a realignment of the US 41 mainline, raising of the 
northbound gradeline, and elimination of existing access between Velp 
Avenue and I-43 via US 41. The project limits on US 41 extend from 
Memorial Drive to County M, a distance of approximately 3.5 miles and 
the project limits on I-43 extend from US 41 to Atkinson Drive, a 
distance of approximately 2 miles. The project also includes 
construction of roundabouts, construction of new bridges and 
replacement of existing bridges.

DATES: By this notice, the FHWA 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 within 180 days of publication of this 
Federal Register notice. 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.
