-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA and other

actions grant approvals for the project.

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
