SUMMARY: The FHWA, on behalf of Caltrans, is issuing this notice to 
announce actions taken by Caltrans that are final within the meaning of 
23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway project, 
State Route 91 from the cities of Anaheim and Yorba Linda to the City 
of Riverside, in the counties of Orange and Riverside, 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 4, 
2013. 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.

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: The State Route 91 (SR-91) Corridor 
Improvement Project includes one general purpose lane would be 
constructed in each direction on SR-91, from the SR-91/Route 241 (SR-
241) interchange in the Cities of Anaheim and Yorba Linda to Pierce 
Street in the City of Riverside. The existing express lanes in Orange 
County will be extended east from the Orange/County line to Interstate 
15 (I-15) in the City of Corona. The existing HOV lanes would be 
converted to tolled express lanes, and one additional tolled express 
lane would be added in each direction on SR-91. Direct tolled express 
lane connectors would be constructed on southbound and northbound I-15 
near the Ontario Avenue interchange through the SR-91/I-15 interchange 
to connect to the eastbound and westbound SR-91 tolled express lanes. 
Auxiliary lanes would be added at various locations.
    The project is intended to improve the vehicle, person, and goods 
movement within the SR-91 corridor to more effectively serve existing 
and future travel demand between and within Riverside and Orange 
Counties; and to provide improvements along the SR-91 and I-15
