AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT

ACTION: Notice of limitation on claims for judicial review of actions 
by FHWA and other Federal agencies


SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by FHWA that are final

proposed transportation project, the Sound Transit Lynnwood Link 
Extension Project, located in the cities of Seattle, Shoreline, 
Mountlake Terrace, and Lynnwood, WA. Those actions grant licenses, 
permits, and approvals for the project.

DATES: By this notice, 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 March 7, 2016. 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.
