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 the FHWA's finding that a Buy America waiver is 
appropriate for use of non-domestic Cargo Cranes with minimum capacity 
of 92.5 US tons for Cleveland-Cuyahoga Ports Authority in the State of 
Ohio.
    In accordance with Division K, section 122 of the ``Consolidated 
and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015'' (Pub. L. 113-235), 
the FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site 
for non-domestic Cargo Cranes (https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/contracts/waivers.cfm?id=105) on March 11. 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 Cargo Cranes that meet the project specifications. 
Based on all the information available to the agency, FHWA concludes 
that there are no domestic manufacturers of the Cargo Cranes that meet 
the specifications for Cleveland-Cuyahoga Ports Authority.
    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 the FHWA's Web site via the
