Interstate Highway 10 to the Franklin Mountains State Park in Texas

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 the FHWA and other 
Federal agencies that are final within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 
139(l)(1). The actions relate to a proposed highway project, upgrades 
to Texas State Loop 375 from Interstate Highway 10 to 0.479 Mile East 
of the Tom Mays Unit of the Franklin Mountains State Park Entrance 
(Loop 375 Transmountain West Project), in El Paso County in the State 
of Texas. 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 March 12, 2012. If the Federal 
law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time period 
of less than 180 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time 
period still applies.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Gregory Punske, District Engineer, 
Federal Highway Administration, 300 East 8th Street, Rm. 826, Austin, 
Texas 78701; telephone: 512-536-5960, fax: 512-536-5990 e-mail:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the FHWA and

licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in 
the State of Texas: Upgrades to Texas State Loop 375 from Interstate 
Highway 10 (IH-10) to 0.479 Mile East of the Tom Mays Unit of the 
Franklin Mountains State Park Entrance (Loop 375 Transmountain West 
Project) in El Paso County. The proposed improvements include widening 
the roadway to a four-lane divided freeway with two-lane frontage roads 
in each direction, grade-separated intersections at Northwestern Drive, 
Resler Drive, future Plexxar Road, and future Paseo Del Norte Road, and 
two direct connector ramps from Texas State Loop 375 westbound to IH-10 
eastbound and from IH-10 westbound to Texas State Loop 375 eastbound. 
At approximately 0.5 mile east of the future Paseo del Norte Road, the 
roadway would transition to a four-lane divided section that matches 
the existing configuration of Loop 375 just east of the entrance to the 
Tom Mays Unit of the Franklin Mountains State Park. The project will 
require approximately 41.2 acres of additional right of way and would 
not result in residential or commercial displacements, with the

actions were taken, are described in the Final Environmental Assessment
