Background

    On November 12, 2019, at 84 FR 61494, FHWA published in the Federal 
Register an NPRM proposing to update the National Bridge Inspection 
Standards (NBIS). Through this NPRM, FHWA proposes to update the NBIS 
to address the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act 
requirements, incorporate technological advancements including the use 
of unmanned aerial systems, and address ambiguities identified since 
the last update to the regulation in 2009. The FHWA also proposes to 
repeal two outdated regulations: The Highway Bridge Replacement and 
Rehabilitation Program and the Discretionary Bridge Candidate Rating 
Factor.
    The original comment period for the NPRM closes on January 13, 
2020. The FHWA believes that this closing date may not provide 
sufficient time to review and provide comprehensive comments. The 
extension is in the public interest based on FHWA's desire to allow 
interested parties sufficient time to review and provide comprehensive 
comments on this NPRM. To allow the public to submit comprehensive 
comments, the closing date is changed from January 13, 2020, to March 
13, 2020.
