These actions relate to Purgatory Road, a proposed highway project between State Route (SR) 9 and Southern Parkway (SR 7), in the County of Washington, State of Utah. Those actions grant licenses, permits and/or approvals for the project. DATES: By this notice, the FHWA, on behalf of UDOT, is advising the public of final Federal 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 August 30, 2019. 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.

UDOT’s normal business hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time Zone), Monday through Friday, except State and Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Effective January 17, 2017, FHWA assigned to UDOT certain responsibilities of FHWA for environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws and regulations for highway projects in Utah, pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327. Actions taken by UDOT on FHWA’s behalf pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 constitute Federal agency actions for purposes of Federal law. Notice is hereby given that UDOT has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the Purgatory Road; SR 9 to Southern Parkway project in the State of Utah. The Purgatory Road project proposes to improve regional system linkage and mobility between SR 9 and Southern Parkway. The project includes constructing a new three-lane roadway on new alignment between SR 9 and Southern Parkway. The proposed alignment would begin at SR 9 and follow the existing 5300 West alignment until the Quail Creek Industrial Park. The alignment would then run generally southward along the existing dirt road on the east side of the Purgatory Flat until approximately Landfill Road where it would swing to the west. The alignment would then cross the Virgin River via a new approximate 400-feet long, three-span structure to connect directly to Southern Parkway. These improvements were identified in the Environmental Assessment (EA) prepared for the project by UDOT as the PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Purgatory Road Build Alternative, which combined Alternatives N2, M3, and R2. The actions by UDOT, and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the EA and UDOT Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the project (Finding of No Significant Impact for Purgatory Road; State Route 9 to Southern Parkway in Washington County, Utah, Project No. F–LC53(72)), issued on February 26, 2019, and in other documents in the UDOT project records.

waived the strict application of 18 CFR 806.22(f)(10) to up to 601 
ABR(f) approvals and authorized the Executive Director to add one or 
two years to the term of those approvals to best balance the projected 
workload over the five year renewal cycle. The list of extended
