Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway in 
North Carolina

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Limitations on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by FHWA and Other Federal Agencies.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces action taken by the FHWA and other 
Federal Agencies that is final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 
139(l)(1). This final agency action relates to a proposed highway 
project, Bonner Bridge Replacement Project along NC 12, from Rodanthe 
to Bodie Island in Dare County, North Carolina. The FHWA's Record of 
Decision (ROD) identifies the Bridge within the Existing NC 12 Easement 
Alternative as the selected alternative for Phase IIa of the Bonner 
Bridge Replacement 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 April 21, 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 FHWA has taken 
final agency action by issuing a Record of Decision (ROD) for the 
following highway project in the State of North Carolina: Pea Island 
Long-Term Improvements for Phase IIa of the Bonner Bridge Replacement 
Project along Highway NC 12 in Dare County, North Carolina. The project 
is also known as State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) 
Project B-2500A, and is part of the second phase (Phase IIa) of the 
Parallel Bridge Corridor/Transportation Management Plan (PBC/TMP), 
which was identified as the selected alternative for Phase I of the 
Bonner Bridge Replacement Project (STIP No. B-2500) in the Record of 
Decision (ROD) approved by FHWA on December 20, 2010. The NC 12 PBC/TMP 
addresses the length of the entire project for STIP No. B-2500, from 
the Village of Rodanthe to Bodie Island. The TMP is guiding the 
implementation of future phases of the project through 2060.
    Located along the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the selected 
alternative for Phase IIa proposes to construct a bridge in the 
existing NC 12 easement approximately 2.1 miles in length to replace 
the existing surface road and the temporary bridge over the Pea Island 
inlet. The total approximate length of Phase IIa (including approaches) 
is 2.4 miles. Pea Island inlet formed as a result of Hurricane Irene in 
August 2011.

the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the
