Background

    The FHWA's Buy America policy in 23 CFR 635.410 requires a domestic 
manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including 
protective coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid 
construction project. The regulation also provides for a waiver of the 
Buy America requirements when the application would be inconsistent 
with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel 
and iron products are not sufficiently available. This notice provides 
information regarding the FHWA's finding that a Buy America waiver is 
appropriate to use non-domestic Machinery and Motor Brakes; 230/460 
Volts, three-phase, 60 Hz. The use of the Machinery and Motor brakes is 
to meet the Federal design code, AASHTO LRFD for Movable Highway Bridge 
Design Specifications for bascule bridges.
    In accordance with section 123 of Division A of the ``Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2010'' (Pub. L. 111-117), the FHWA published a 
notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site for Machinery and 
Motor brakes (http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/contracts/waivers.cfm?id=47) on April 7, 2010. The FHWA received no comments in 
response to the publication, which suggests that the Machinery and 
Motor brakes may not be available domestically. During the 15-day 
comment period, the FHWA conducted additional nationwide review to 
locate potential domestic manufacturers for Machinery and Motor brakes. 
Based on all the information available to the agency, the FHWA 
concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers for the Machinery 
and Motor brakes; 230/460 Volts AC, three-phase, 60 HZ.
    In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the SAFETEA-LU 
Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-244, 122 Stat.1572), the 
FHWA is providing this notice as its finding that a waiver of Buy 
America requirements is appropriate. The FHWA invites public comment on
