proposed highway project, the Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River 
Bridges Project, which would provide a new Ohio River Bridge carrying 
Interstate 65 (I-65) between Louisville, Kentucky and Jeffersonville, 
Indiana immediately upstream and adjacent to the existing I-65 bridge, 
and a second new Ohio River Bridge located approximately eight miles 
upstream of the existing I-65 crossing, providing a connection between 
KY 841 (Gene Snyder Freeway) in eastern Jefferson County, Kentucky and 
SR 265 in eastern Clark County, Indiana. Both Bridges are located in 
Jefferson County, Kentucky and Clark County, Indiana.

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 December 26, 2012. If the

the reconstruction of the Kennedy Interchange (where I-65, I-64, and I-
71 converge in Kentucky just south of the Kennedy Bridge) in its 
existing location, and the reconstruction of the I-65 approach in 
Indiana. In total, reconstruction of approximately 2.8 miles of I-65 is
