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 nondomestic Ship-to-Shore Container Gantry Cranes to accommodate Ultra Large Container Vessels at the Port of Newark Container Terminal in the State of New Jersey. In accordance with the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Pub. L. 114– 113) and the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2017 (Pub. L. 114–223), FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site: http:// www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/ contracts/waivers.cfm?id=134 on September 20th. The FHWA received three comments in response to the publication. The commenters provided general comments on Buy America with no specific information regarding domestic sources for Ship-to-Shore Container Gantry Cranes. Based on all the information available to the agency, FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers of Ship-toShore Container Gantry Cranes to PO 00000 Frm 00109 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 87125 accommodate Ultra Large Container Vessels at the Port of Newark Container Terminal. The New Jersey State DOT, contractors, and subcontractors involved in the procurement of ship-toshore container gantry cranes, are reminded of the need to comply with the Cargo Preference Act in 46 CFR part 38, if applicable. 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.
