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 FHWA's finding that a Buy America waiver is 
appropriate for use of non-domestic steel cable nets used in a dragnet 
impact absorption system for truck escape ramps on SR431, US550, and 
SR163 in the State of Nevada.
    In accordance with Division K, section 122 of the ``Consolidated 
and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015'' (Pub. L. 113-235), 
FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site for 
non-domestic steel cable nets (https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/contracts/waivers.cfm?id=107) on April 6. The FHWA received no comments 
in response to the publication. During the 15-day comment period, FHWA 
conducted additional review to locate potential domestic manufacturers 
of steel cable nets for dragnet impact absorption system. Based on all 
the information available to the agency, FHWA concludes that there are 
no domestic manufacturers of the of the steel cable nets for the 
dragnet impact absorption system for truck escape ramps on SR431, 
US550, and SR163 in the State of Nevada.
    In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the SAFETEA-LU 
Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-244, 122 Stat. 1572), 
FHWA is providing this notice as its finding that a waiver of Buy 
America requirements is appropriate. The FHWA invites public comment on 
this finding for an additional 15 days following the effective date of 
the finding. Comments may be submitted to FHWA's Web site via the link
