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, US 70 Bypass of the City of Havelock in Craven County, North 
Carolina. The FHWA's Record of Decision (ROD) identifies Alternative 3 
for the US 70 Havelock Bypass project as the selected alternative.

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 June 9, 2017. 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.
