Download as PDF daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 42200 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 161 / Monday, August 20, 2018 / Notices Act (NEPA) agency, will prepare an EIS for a proposal to satisfy transportation and safety goals at Interstate 15 (I–15)/ Green Spring Drive (Exit 10) Interchange and the surrounding roadway system in Washington County within Washington City, Utah. The proposed project study area extends east and west along I–15 between the I–15/Green Spring Drive Interchange (Exit 10) and I–15/ Washington Parkway Interchange (Exit 13). The extent of the proposed study area is generally bound by Buena Vista Boulevard to the north and Telegraph Street to the south. The proposed logical termini for this study are I–15 Exit 10 and Exit 13, as well as Buena Vista Boulevard, and Telegraph Street. Each of these streets are major arterials that provide north-south and east-west travel within the study area. The environmental review process for this project began in the summer of 2017. An information meeting was held August 29, 2017 to gather public input related to the transportation needs within the study area and inform the community of the environmental process. Based on community concerns regarding potential outcomes of this study, UDOT decided the appropriate level of environmental review needed for this project would be best provided by proceeding with an EIS. As part of the EIS, UDOT will consider a range of alternatives based on the purpose and need of the project and taking into account agency and public input. The currently contemplated alternatives include: (1) Taking no action (no-build); (2) making the existing system operate more efficiently; (3) adding capacity to the system; (4) dispersing of traffic more evenly throughout the system; (5) reducing traffic in the system; (6) combinations of any of the above; and (7) other reasonable alternatives if identified during the scoping process. Alternatives will be refined based on input from agencies and the public during the initial coordination/scoping period and agency and public involvement opportunities. Alternatives that do not meet the project purpose and need or that are otherwise not reasonable will not be carried forward for detailed consideration. A Coordination Plan is being prepared to define the agency and public participation procedure for the environmental review process. The plan will outline: (1) How agencies and the public will provide input during the scoping process; (2) the development of the purpose and need; and (3) alternatives development. Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will be sent to VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:04 Aug 17, 2018 Jkt 244001 appropriate Federal, State, Participating, and local agencies, Native American tribes, and to private organizations and citizens who have previously expressed or are known to have an interest in this proposal. A public scoping, purpose and need, and alternatives meeting is scheduled for August 28, 2018 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Washington City Community Center in Washington, Utah. Public notice will be given of the time and place of the meeting. Information regarding this meeting and the project may also be obtained through a public website maintained by UDOT at www.mp11.org. During the NEPA process, other public meetings may be held as appropriate to allow the public, as well as Federal, State, and local agencies, and tribes, to provide comments on the purpose of and need for the project, potential alternatives, and social, economic, and environmental issues of concern. In addition, a public hearing will be held following the release of the Draft EIS. Public notice advertisements and direct mailings will notify interested parties of the time and place of any public meetings and of the public hearing. The Draft EIS will be available for public and agency review and comment prior to the public hearing. To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed action are addressed and all significant issues identified, comments, and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the EIS should be directed to UDOT at the mail or email address provided above by September 14, 2018. For additional information please visit the project website at www.mp11.org. Information requested or comments can also be provided by email to info@mp11.org.

The Federal Register Notice soliciting public comment on the ICR, with a 60day comment period was published on February 28, 2018, at 83 FR 8732. Abstract: Part 565 The regulations in part 565 specify the format, contents, and physical requirements for a vehicle identification number (VIN) system and its installation to simplify vehicle identification information retrieval and to increase the accuracy and efficiency of vehicle recall campaigns. The regulations require each vehicle manufactured in one stage to have a VIN that is assigned by the vehicle’s manufacturer. Each vehicle manufactured in more than one stage is to have a VIN assigned by the incomplete vehicle manufacturer. Each VIN must consist of 17 characters, including a check digit, in the ninth position, with the purpose of verifying the accuracy of any VIN transcription. The VIN must also incorporate the world manufacturer identifier (WMI) assigned to the manufacturer by the competent authority in the country where the manufacturer is located. The WMI occupies the first three characters of the VIN for manufacturers that produce 1,000 or more vehicles of a specified type within a model year, and positions 1, 2, 3, 12, 13, and 14 of VINs assigned by manufacturers that produce less than 1,000 vehicles of a specified type per model year. The remaining characters of the VIN describe various vehicle attributes, such as make, model, and type, which vary depending on the vehicle’s type classification (i.e. passenger car, multipurpose passenger vehicle, truck, bus, trailer, motorcycle, low-speed vehicle), and identify the vehicle’s model year, plant code, and sequential production number. NHTSA PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42201 has contracted with SAE International of Warrendale, Pennsylvania, to coordinate the assignment of WMIs to manufacturers in the United States. Each manufacturer of vehicles subject to the requirements of part 565 must submit, either directly or through an agent, the unique identifier for each make and type of vehicle it manufactures at least 60 days before affixing the first VIN using the identifier. Manufacturers are also required to submit to NHTSA, information necessary to decipher the characters contained in their VINs, including amendments to that information, at least 60 days prior to offering for sale the first vehicle identified by a VIN containing that information or if information concerning vehicle characteristics sufficient to specify the VIN code is unavailable to the manufacturer by that date, then within one week after that information first becomes available. With changes implemented in 2015, manufacturers have been able to make these submissions using an online portal on the agency’s website at https:// vpic.nhtsa.dot.gov. Part 567 The regulations in part 567 specify the content and location of, and other requirements for, the certification label to be affixed to a motor vehicle, as required by the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, as amended (the Vehicle Safety Act) (49 U.S.C. 30115) and the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act, as amended (the Cost Savings Act) (49 U.S.C. 30254 and 33109), to address certification-related duties and liabilities, and to provide the consumer with information to assist him or her in determining which of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) (as found in 49 CFR part 571), Bumper Standards (as found in 49 CFR part 581), and Federal Theft Prevention Standards (as found in 49 CFR part 541) are applicable to the vehicle. The regulations pertain to manufacturers of motor vehicles to which one or more standards are applicable, including persons who alter such vehicles prior to their first retail sale, and to Registered Importers of vehicles not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSS that are determined eligible for importation by NHTSA, based on the vehicles’ capability of being modified to conform to those standards. The regulations require each manufacturer to affix to each vehicle, in a prescribed location, a label that, among other things, identifies the vehicle’s manufacturer (defined as the E:\FR\FM\20AUN1.SGM 20AUN1
