Notice of Proposed Draft Program Comment To Exempt Effects of Transportation-Related Undertakings Within Rail Rights-of-Way
Document Number: 2017-25025
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-11-17
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, Agencies and Commissions
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, in coordination with the U.S. Department of Transportation, proposes a program comment to exempt effects of transportation-related undertakings within railroad and rail transit rights-of-way. This program comment would exempt from Section 106 review certain activities that have the potential to affect historic properties within railroad and rail transit rights-of-way where those effects are likely to be minimal or not adverse. Further, this program comment includes an optional approach that could streamline the Section 106 review for additional types of transportation-related undertakings involving railroad and rail transit properties, including those that may cause adverse effects. Issuance of this program comment would fulfill the requirements of Section 11504 of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act.

Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Vision
Document Number: 2016-02367
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-02-08
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
FMCSA announces its denial of 345 applications from individuals who requested an exemption from the Federal vision standard applicable to interstate truck and bus drivers and the reasons for the denials. FMCSA has statutory authority to exempt individuals from the vision requirement if the exemptions granted will not compromise safety. The Agency has concluded that granting these exemptions does not provide a level of safety that will be equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety maintained without the exemptions for these commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment
Document Number: 2016-02268
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-02-08
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
NHTSA is amending the side marker requirements contained in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) on lamps, reflective devices and associated equipment for vehicles 80 inches or more in width and less than 30 feet long. This final rule adopts the amendments proposed in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), published on December 4, 2012. These amendments will restore the side marker photometry requirements for motor vehicles under thirty feet in length that were in place prior to the 2007 final rule that reorganized the standard. Restoration of the side marker requirements will have no negative impact on safety or function and will allow motor vehicle manufacturers to avoid unnecessary modifications to their side marker lamps with no added safety or functional benefit.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-02193
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-02-08
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of wire chafing damage, which caused an electrical arc to an adjacent hydraulic tube located on the forward bulkhead of the main landing gear (MLG) wheel well, resulting in a hole in a hydraulic tube and consequent total loss of system B hydraulic fluid. This proposed AD would require an inspection for chafing damage of wire bundles and a hydraulic tube in the right side of the MLG wheel well, and corrective action if necessary; and installation of clamps between the wire bundles and hydraulic tube. We are proposing this AD to prevent chafing damage, which could result in electrical arcing that can cause a hole in the hydraulic tube and consequent loss of hydraulic fluid, possibly resulting in a fire in the MLG wheel well.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-01580
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that a main landing gear (MLG) door could not be closed due to rupture of the actuator fitting. Later reports indicated that the forward monoblock fitting of the MLG door actuator (referred to as the nerve area) could be damaged after rupture of the actuator fitting. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the MLG door actuator fitting and its components for cracking, and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD would also require eventual replacement of all affected MLG door actuator fittings with new monoblock fittings, which would terminate the repetitive inspections. We are proposing this AD to prevent rupture of the door actuator fittings, which could result in detachment of an MLG door and subsequent exterior damage and consequent reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace, Shelton, WA
Document Number: 2016-01503
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at Sanderson Field Airport, Shelton, WA, to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures developed at the airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace, Revocation of Class E Airspace; Chico, CA
Document Number: 2016-01502
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
This action modifies Class D airspace, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, and removes Class E surface area airspace designated as an extension at Chico Municipal Airport, Chico, CA. The FAA found it necessary to amend the airspace area by increasing the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for arriving and departing aircraft at the airport. The FAA found no standard instrument approach procedures requiring Class E surface area airspace designated as an extension to Class D airspace. This action changes from navigation aids to geographic coordinate references in the legal description and updates the geographic coordinates of Chico Municipal and Ranchaero Airports for the Class D and E airspace areas noted above.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Boise, ID
Document Number: 2016-01501
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
This action modifies Class E surface area airspace designated as an extension to Class C airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field Airport, formerly Boise Air Terminal (Gowen Field), Boise, ID. After reviewing the airspace, the FAA found standard instrument approach procedures are not fully contained in controlled airspace, thereby necessitating airspace redesign for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also corrects the name of the airport to match the FAAs aeronautical database.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-00949
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 96-18-06 for certain Airbus Model A320-211 and -231 airplanes. AD 96-18-06 required visual inspections to detect cracks of the pressurized floor fittings at frame 36, and renewal of the zone protective finish or replacement of fittings with new fittings if necessary. Since we issued AD 96-18- 06, an extended service goal analysis by the manufacturer revealed that the compliance times and repetitive inspection intervals should be reduced to meet the design service goal. This AD retains the requirements of AD 96-18-06, with reduced compliance times and repetitive inspection intervals. This AD also adds Model A320-212 airplanes to the applicability. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking in the pressurized floor fittings at frame 36, which could result in failure of a floor fitting and subsequent depressurization of the fuselage.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-00611
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 98-20-27 for all Airbus Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4-600R series airplanes, and Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes (collectively called Model A300-600 series airplanes). AD 98-20-27 required repetitive inspections to detect fatigue cracking of the wing top skin at the front spar joint; and a follow-on eddy current inspection and repair, if necessary. This new AD reduces the inspection compliance time and intervals, and expands the inspection area of the wing top skin at the front spar joint. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking of the wing top skin in an area not required for inspection by AD 98-20-27. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the wing top skin at the front spar joint; such fatigue cracking could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
