by FHWA, and Other Federal Agencies.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by FHWA, and other Federal

from Sandhill Road (SR 1971) to Marston Road (SR 1001). Those actions 
grant licenses, permits, and 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 unless the claim is filed on or before February 3, 2014. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the FHWA and 
other Federal agencies have taken final agency action subject to 23 
U.S.C. Sec.  139 (l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for 
the following highway project in the State of North Carolina: US 1 
Improvements, Federal Aid No. NHF-1(1), Richmond County, North 
Carolina. This project identified a need to address capacity 
constraints and mobility considerations on the current US 1 in and 
around Rockingham, North Carolina. The proposed action will improve 19 
miles of US 1 from Sandhill Road (SR 1971) south of Rockingham to 
Marston Road (SR 1001) in Marston. The selected alternative 
(Alternative 21) constructs approximately 14 miles on new location, and 
widens about five miles of existing US 1. From Sandhill Road (SR 1971) 
to about one and a half miles north of Fox Road (SR 1606), US 1 is 
proposed to be a four-lane, median-divided roadway with full control of 
access along the new location part and partial control of access on the 
widening part. From one and a half miles north of Fox Road (SR 1606) to 
Cognac Road (SR 1605), a four-lane, median-divided roadway with partial 
control of access is being proposed. A five-lane section with no 
control of access is proposed along existing US 1 from Cognac Road (SR 
1605) to the existing five-lane section at Marston Road (SR 1001). The 
actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws under which such actions 
were taken, are described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement 
(FEIS) for the project, approved on December 21, 2011, in the FHWA 
Record of Decision (ROD) issued on June 28, 2013, and in other
