AGENCY: FMCSA announces receipt of applications from 11 individuals for an SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:35 Jun 02, 2014 Jkt 232001 exemption from the prohibition against persons with a clinical diagnosis of epilepsy or any other condition which is likely to cause a loss of consciousness or any loss of ability to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) from operating CMVs in interstate commerce. The regulation and the associated advisory criteria published in the Code of Federal Regulations as the ‘‘Instructions for Performing and Recording Physical Examinations’’ have resulted in numerous drivers being prohibited from operating CMVs in interstate commerce based on the fact that they have had one or more seizures and are taking anti-seizure medication, rather than an individual analysis of their circumstances by a qualified medical examiner. If granted, the exemptions would enable these individuals who have had one or more seizures and are taking anti-seizure medication to operate CMVs for 2 years in interstate commerce. DATES: Comments must be received on or before July 3, 2014. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments bearing the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) Docket ID FMCSA– 2013–0445 using any of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to https://www.regulations.gov.

Office hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Under 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136(e), FMCSA may grant an exemption for a 2year period if it finds ‘‘such exemption would likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.’’ The statutes also allow the Agency to renew exemptions at the end of the 2-year period. The 11 individuals listed in this notice have recently requested an exemption from the epilepsy prohibition in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(8), which applies to drivers who operate CMVs as defined in 49 CFR 390.5, in interstate commerce. Section 391.41(b)(8) states that a person is physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle if that person has no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of epilepsy or any other condition which is likely to cause the loss of consciousness or any loss of ability to control a CMV. FMCSA provides medical advisory criteria for use by medical examiners in determining whether drivers with certain medical conditions should be certified to operate CMVs in intrastate commerce. The advisory criteria indicate that if an individual has had a sudden episode of a non-epileptic seizure or loss of consciousness of unknown cause which did not require anti-seizure medication, the decision whether that person’s condition is likely to cause the loss of consciousness or loss of ability to control a CMV should E:\FR\FM\03JNN1.SGM 03JNN1

Project Overview: The I-25/Arapahoe Interchange project is an 
interchange improvement project, to improve congestion between I-25 and 
Arapahoe Road Interchange Complex. Project Purpose: The purpose of the 
project is to reduce congestion and improve traffic operations and

    3. I-25 Improvements through Pueblo EIS. Project Location: I-25 
from just south of US 50/SH 47 to just south of Pueblo Boulevard in 
Pueblo, Colorado, a distance of approximately 7 miles. Project 
reference number: IM 0251-156. Project overview: The roadway in this 
section pre-dates the interstate system and is among the oldest 
segments of the interstate system in Colorado. The Modified I-25 
Alternative would widen I-25 from four to six lanes through much of the 
project area and reconstructs and reconfigures interchanges throughout. 
The central part of the project would be realigned, and a portion of 
the existing highway would be converted to a local road. Project 
purpose: The purpose of the project is to improve safety by addressing 
deteriorating roadways and bridges and non-standard road 
characteristics on I-25 and improve local and regional mobility within 
and through Pueblo to meet existing and future travel demands. Signed 
NEPA documents and permits: FEIS was signed on August 15, 2013 and ROD 
was signed on April 17, 2014. www.newpueblofreeway.org/.
    4. Dillon Extension EA. Location: I-25 to Platteville Boulevard/
Dillon Drive south of the existing Eden Interchange in Pueblo County, 
CO. Federal project number: 0251(331). Project overview: The proposed 
new access to I-25 requires construction of a new bridge over I-25 at 
Platteville Boulevard/Dillon Drive and new on and off ramps to I-25 
South of the bridge. This configuration is known as a split diamond 
interchange. The split diamond interchange will connect Platteville 
Boulevard/Dillon Drive and Eden Road. A new one-way frontage road east 
of I-25 and a two-way frontage road along the west side of I-25 would 
connect the south half of this interchange at Platteville Boulevard/
Dillon Drive with the north half at Eden Road. Project purpose: The 
project is designed to provide more direct access to I-25 from Pueblo 
West, and to accommodate traffic from existing and planned growth along 
Platteville Boulevard/Dillon Drive west of I-25. Signed NEPA documents 
and permits: EA was signed on January 26, 2011 and the FONSI signed on 
July 27, 2011. https://www.pacog.net/pacog/dillon-eden-interchange-project
    5. North Meadows EA. Location: Primarily in the northern portion of 
the Town of Castle Rock and Douglas County, CO. Project overview: The 
North Meadows Extension project is an interchange project that will 
provide a second northern access to the Meadows development area, 
Castle View High School, and Castle Rock Middle School to and from US 
85 and I-25. Additionally, the project will improve operations and 
safety in the vicinity of the I-25/Meadows Parkway interchange, which 
is being compromised by off-ramp backups on the mainline I-25 and by 
over-capacity on-ramp merges. Project purpose: The purpose of the 
project is to relieve traffic congestion and improve safety at the US 
85/Meadows Parkway intersection and I-25/Meadows Parkway interchange. 
Signed NEPA documents and permits: EA was signed on March 23, 2010 and 
the FONSI was signed on March 17, 2011. https://crgov.com/index.aspx?nid=373.
