Program Comment For Planned Construction of Positive Train Control Facilities Within The Railroad Bed section 106 Scoping Document. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) invites the participation of State Historic Preservation Officers (SHPOs), the historic preservation community, and other stakeholders in developing a PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 proposed Program Comment, pursuant to § 800.14(e) of the rules of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), 36 CFR part 800, to facilitate the review process under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), 16 U.S.C. 470f, for the infrastructure required for Positive Train Control (PTC). The FCC is the lead, or action, federal agency because the construction of PTC facilities requires the use of radio spectrum that is licensed by the FCC. Our process for developing the Program Comment includes government-togovernment consultation with federally recognized Indian Tribes in accordance with § 800.14(e)(4) and (f) of the ACHP rules and in accordance with the trust relationship we share with sovereign Tribal Nations as outlined in the FCC’s Statement of Policy on Establishing a Government-to-Government Relationship With Indians Tribes (16 FCC Rcd 4078, 4081 (2000)). The purpose of this scoping document is to inform and engage all stakeholders in this important process. The FCC will also release a document substantively identical to this document to initiate formal consultation on the development of the proposed Program Comment with federally recognized Tribal Nations. This document provides a statement of purpose, background on PTC, an overview of PTC infrastructure, an explanation of compliance with section 106 for PTC infrastructure, a discussion of ideas for the proposed Program Comment, a description of next steps, and FCC contact information. Purpose PTC will enable the railroads to improve the safety of freight and passenger train operations by preventing derailments, incursions into work zones, and collisions. The FCC’s goal, through Tribal consultation and engagement with the ACHP, SHPOs and stakeholders, is to develop an efficient, practical, and timely review process that ensures full consideration of the effects of PTC facilities on historic properties, including Tribal religious and cultural sites. Congress mandated that the railroads complete PTC deployment by December 31, 2015. To meet this statutory mandate, the railroads are preparing to install more than 20,000 wayside poles nationwide within the existing railroad bed alongside existing tracks. The freight railroads intend to install wayside poles approximately one to two miles apart along their tracks and at certain switch points and other operational sites. Nearly all of the wayside poles are expected to be E:\FR\FM\31OCN1.SGM 31OCN1
