L. 109–59; 119 Stat. 1144) continued the highway bridge program to enable States to improve the condition of their highway bridges over waterways, other topographical barriers, other highways, and railroads. Section 1114(f) amended 23 United State Code (U.S.C.) 144 by adding subsection (r), requiring the Secretary of Transportation to publish in the Federal Register a report describing construction materials used in new Federal-aid bridge construction and bridge rehabilitation projects. As part of the SAFETEA–LU Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110– 244), 23 U.S.C. 144 subsection (r) became subsection (q), but the reporting requirement remained the same.

EMCDONALD on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:22 Aug 30, 2012 Jkt 226001 In conformance with 23 U.S.C. 144(q), FHWA has produced a report that summarizes the types of construction materials used in new bridge construction and bridge rehabilitation projects. Data on Federal-aid and nonFederal-aid highway bridges are included in the report for completeness. The December 2009 National Bridge Inventory (NBI) dataset was used to identify the material types for bridges that were new or replaced within the defined time period. The FHWA’s Financial Management Information System and the 2011 NBI were used to identify the material types for bridges that were rehabilitated within the defined time period. Currently preventative maintenance projects are included in the rehabilitation totals. The report, which is available at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/bridge/ brdgtabs.cfm, consists of the following tables: • Construction Materials for New and Replaced Bridges, a summary report which includes Federal-aid highways and non-Federal-aid highways built in 2010 and 2009. • Construction Materials for Rehabilitated Bridges, a summary report which includes Federal-aid and nonFederal-aid highways rehabilitated in 2010 and 2009. • Construction Materials for Combined New, Replaced and Rehabilitated Bridges, a summary report which combines the first two tables cited above. • Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for New and Replaced Bridges 2010, a detailed State-by-State report with counts and areas for Federal-aid bridges built or replaced in 2010. • Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for New and Replaced Bridges 2009, a detailed State-by-State report with counts and areas for Federal-aid bridges built or replaced in 2009. • Non-Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for New and Replaced Bridges 2010, a detailed Stateby-State report with counts and areas for non-Federal-aid bridges built or replaced in 2010. • Non-Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for New and Replaced Bridges 2009, a detailed Stateby-State report with counts and areas for non-Federal-aid bridges built or replaced in 2009. • Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for Rehabilitated Bridges 2010, a detailed State-by-State report with counts and areas for Federal-aid bridges rehabilitated in 2010. • Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for Rehabilitated Bridges SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53251 2009, a detailed State-by-State report with counts and areas for Federal-aid bridges rehabilitated in 2009. • Non-Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for Rehabilitated Bridges 2010, a detailed State-by-State report with counts and areas for nonFederal-aid bridges rehabilitated in 2010. • Non-Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for Rehabilitated Bridges 2009, a detailed State-by-State report with counts and areas for nonFederal-aid bridges rehabilitated in 2009. • Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for New, Replaced and Rehabilitated Bridges 2010, which combines the 2010 reports on new, replaced and rehabilitated Federal-aid bridges. • Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for New, Replaced and Rehabilitated Bridges 2009, which combines the 2009 reports on new, replaced and rehabilitated Federal-aid bridges. • Non-Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for New, Replaced and Rehabilitated Bridges 2010, which combines the 2010 reports on new, replaced and rehabilitated nonFederal-aid bridges. • Non-Federal-aid Highways: Construction Materials for New Replaced and Rehabilitated Bridges 2009, which combines the 2009 reports on new, replaced and rehabilitated nonFederal-aid bridges. The tables provide data for 2 years: 2009 and 2010. The 2009 data is considered complete for new, replaced and rehabilitated bridges, with a minimal likelihood of upward changes in the totals. The 2010 data is considered partially complete for new bridges and complete for rehabilitated bridges, because many new bridges built in 2010 will not appear in the NBI until they are placed into service the following year. Therefore, next year’s report will include 2010’s data on new bridge construction, because the data will be complete. Each table displays simple counts of bridges and total bridge deck area. Total bridge deck area is measured in square meters, by multiplying the bridge length by the deck width out-to-out. Culverts under fill are included in the counts but not in the areas because a roadway width is not collected. The data is categorized by the following material types, which are identified in the NBI: steel, concrete, pre-stressed concrete, and other. The category ‘‘other’’ includes wood, timber, masonry, aluminum, wrought iron, cast iron, and E:\FR\FM\31AUN1.SGM 31AUN1
