AGENCY: This notice provides clarification to owners and operators of gas distribution pipeline facilities when completing the Mechanical Fitting Failure Report Form, PHMSA F 7100.1– 2. Initial reviews of reports submitted for calendar year 2011 failures have identified a need for PHMSA to issue this notice to provide operators with additional guidance for reporting the apparent cause. PHMSA has also enhanced the online submittal process and plans to implement further improvements.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Chris McLaren, Distribution Integrity Management Program Coordinator at 281–216–4455, or by email at chris.mclaren@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Background Section 192.1009 of the pipeline safety regulations (49 CFR parts 190– 199) requires each owner or operator of a gas distribution pipeline facility to file a written report for any mechanical fitting failure that results in a hazardous leak. A hazardous leak is defined in § 192.1001 as a leak that represents an existing or probable hazard to persons or property and requires immediate repair or continuous action until the conditions are no longer hazardous. Each report must be filed by March 15 of the following year on a Mechanical Fitting Failure Report Form (PHMSA F 7100.1–2). A report is required for all failures regardless of the material composition, type, manufacturer, or size of the fitting. The reporting requirements apply to all failures that result in a hazardous leak due to the use of a fitting and may include failures in the body of the mechanical fitting, failures in the joints between the fitting and the pipe, indications of leakage from the seals associated with the fitting, and partial or complete separation of the pipe from the fitting. Operators are to report all mechanical fitting failures regardless of the cause. It is important to note that PHMSA does not seek information related to failures of cast iron bell and spigot joints unless the leak resulted from a failure of a mechanical fitting used to repair or reinforce a joint. Question 15, ‘‘Apparent Cause of Leak’’, under Part C of PHMSA F 7100.1–2 specifies various apparent causes of leaks. These causes include ‘‘Corrosion,’’ ‘‘Natural Forces,’’ ‘‘Excavation Damage,’’ ‘‘Other Outside Force Damage,’’ ‘‘Material or Welds/ Fusions,’’ ‘‘Equipment,’’ ‘‘Incorrect Operation,’’ and ‘‘Other.’’ These apparent cause options contain two potential options for a failure that apparently results from incorrect installation of the mechanical fitting. One option is ‘‘Material or Welds/ Fusions’’ with a subcategory of ‘‘Construction/Installation Defect.’’ The other option is ‘‘Incorrect Operation.’’ PHMSA prefers that failures resulting from an installation defect be reported E:\FR\FM\11JNN1.SGM 11JNN1

Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on the Newberg Dundee 
Bypass Project Project: Yamhill and Washington County, OR

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Limitations on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by FHWA.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA, NMFS, 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, Newberg 
Dundee Bypass Project, in Yamhill and Washington Counties, Oregon. This 
action grants approval 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 December 10, 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: Michelle Eraut, Program Development 
Team Leader, Federal Highway Administration, 530 Center Street NE., 
Suite 420, Salem, Oregon 97301, Telephone: (503) 316-2559. The Newberg 
Dundee Bypass Project Final Environmental Impact Statement, Record of 
Decision (ROD) and other project records are available upon written 
request from the Federal Highway Administration at the address shown 
above. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the 
Newberg Dundee Bypass Project should be directed to the FHWA at the 
address provided above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the FHWA has 
taken final agency action subject to 23 U.S.C. 139 (l)(1) by issuing 
approval for the following highway project in the State of Oregon: 
Newberg Dundee Bypass Project. The project will build an 11-mile, four-
travel lane, access-controlled expressway (Bypass) with four 
interchanges and related local circulation changes to reduce congestion 
on Oregon 99W through Newberg and Dundee in Yamhill and Washington 
Counties, Oregon. The project area is located along the south sides of 
Newberg and Dundee, from the Oregon 99W/Oregon 18 junction near Dayton 
(approximately Oregon 18 milepost 51.6) to past Rex Hill, east of 
Newberg (approximately Oregon 99W milepost 19.6). The project followed 
a tiered NEPA process. On August 26, 2005, FHWA issued a ROD on the 
Tier 1 FEIS that approved the Bypass Corridor (Corridor), the number 
and location of interchanges, and a general Bypass configuration. The 
Tier 2 DEIS, published in June 5, 2010, evaluated a No Build 
Alternative and Build Alternative based on the approved Corridor, 
including several design and local circulation options. A Preferred 
Alternative was identified, considering the Tier 2 DEIS analysis and 
public and agency comments received on the Tier 2 DEIS. The actions by 
the Federal agencies and the laws under which such actions were taken 
are described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement
