Therefore, in accordance with the above–referenced regulation, the Department is initiating a changed– circumstances review. SKF Aeroengine claims that the information contained in its February 6, 2009, request demonstrates that SKF Aeroengine is the successor–in-interest to SNFA and requests that the Department thus refrain from issuing a changed–circumstances questionnaire.

The notice will set forth the factual and legal conclusions upon which our preliminary results are based. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(ii), interested parties will have an opportunity to comment on the preliminary results of review. We will issue our final results of review no later than the regulatory deadline in accordance with 19 CFR 351.216(e). During the course of this antidumping duty changed–circumstances review, we will not change the cash–deposit requirements for the subject merchandise. The cash–deposit rate will be altered, if warranted, pursuant only to the final results of this changed– circumstances review. This notice of initiation is in accordance with section 751(b)(1) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.216(b) and (d), and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(1). Dated: March 23, 2009. Ronald K.

Realignment of a segment of National Guard Avenue would remedy some of these vulnerabilities, and protect mission-critical resources.

Preliminary studies indicate that potential significant adverse effects to wetlands and to sensitive Native American sites may result from realignment of the roadway. In addition to the road segment realignment, the 158 FW would also construct a new main gate along a portion of the realigned roadway, construct a new Security Forces facility, which would be collocated with the new main gate, and construct an internal roadway loop that would improve vehicular safety and circulation to a portion of the installation. In addition to the proposed action, another action alternative will evaluate the potential impacts of an alternative roadway alignment for National Guard Avenue, and redesigning the main gate in its current location to meet AT/FP criteria. The Security Forces and internal roadway loop would remain as described under the Proposed Action. The no-action alternative will also be analyzed in the EIS.

(EIS) for Proposed Realignment of a Portion of National Guard Avenue 
and Construction of the New Main Gate for the 158th Fighter Wing,

AGENCY: National Guard Bureau.

ACTION: Notice of intent.

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 
1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq.), the Council on 
Environmental Quality (CEQ) Regulations for Implementing the Procedural 
Provisions

[[Page 14109]]

of NEPA (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508), and Air Force policy and procedures 
(32 CFR Part 989), the National Guard Bureau is issuing this notice to 
advise the public of its intent to prepare an EIS to evaluate the 
potential environmental impacts that could result from the proposed 
realignment of a portion of National Guard Avenue, and construction of 
a new main gate at the 158th Fighter Wing (158 FW) installation at 
Burlington International Airport.
    A recent evaluation of infrastructure security at the installation 
identified several vulnerabilities revealing a potential threat to 
mission-critical resources. Realignment of a segment of National Guard 
Avenue would remedy some of these vulnerabilities, and protect mission-
critical resources. Work conducted would be in compliance with anti-
terrorism/force protection (AT/FP) standoff criteria. Preliminary 
studies indicate that potential significant adverse effects to wetlands 
and to sensitive Native American sites may result from realignment of 
the roadway. In addition to the road segment realignment, the 158 FW 
would also construct a new main gate along a portion of the realigned 
roadway, construct a new Security Forces facility, which would be 
collocated with the new main gate, and construct an internal roadway 
loop that would improve vehicular safety and circulation to a portion 
of the installation.
    In addition to the proposed action, another action alternative will 
evaluate the potential impacts of an alternative roadway alignment for 
National Guard Avenue, and redesigning the main gate in its current 
location to meet AT/FP criteria. The Security Forces and internal 
roadway loop would remain as described under the Proposed Action. The 
no-action alternative will also be analyzed in the EIS.
    The National Guard Bureau will conduct a scoping meeting to solicit 
public input concerning the proposal. The scoping process will help 
identify issues to be addressed in the environmental analysis. Comments 
will be accepted at any time during the environmental impact analysis 
process. However, to ensure the Air Force has sufficient time to 
consider public input in the preparation of the Draft EIS, comments 
should be submitted to the address below by 16 April 2009.
    Notices will be posted and published in the Burlington Free Press. 
The scoping meetings will be held at the South Burlington High School, 
Cafeteria 2, 550 Dorset Street, South Burlington, VT 05403, on 
16 April 2009, from 6-9 p.m.
