Department of Transportation December 23, 2013 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Dornier Luftfahrt GmbH Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-30491
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Dornier Luftfahrt GmbH Models Dornier 228-100, 228-101, 228-200, 228- 201, 228-202, and 228-212 airplanes that would supersede AD 2006-11-19. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as chafed or damaged wiring on the flight deck overhead panels (5VE and 6VE). We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2013-30489
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) BR700-715A1-30, BR700-715B1- 30, and BR700-715C1-30 turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a partial de-bonding of the low pressure compressor (LPC) case ice impact panels during an engine shop visit. This proposed AD would require replacement of the LPC case ice impact panels. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the LPC case ice impact panels, which could result in damage to the engine and loss of control of the airplane.
Integrated Corridor Management Deployment Planning Grants
Document Number: 2013-30487
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-23
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
The FHWA is extending the application period for the Integrated Corridor Management Deployment Planning Grants, which was issued through a notice on November 1, 2013, at 78 FR 65751. The original application period is set to close on December 31, 2013. The extension is based on input received from DOT stakeholders that the December 31 closing date does not provide sufficient time for submission of applications. The FHWA agrees that the application period should be extended. Therefore, the closing date for applications is extended to January 17, 2014.

Revise Notice of Intent for an Environmental Impact Statement: State Route (SR) 95 Realignment Study: Interstate 40 to SR 68, Mohave County, Arizona
Document Number: 2013-30310
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-23
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
FHWA is issuing this Revised NOI to advise the public of a change to the environmental review process for the proposed realignment of State Route (SR) 95 in Mohave County, Arizona. FHWA and the project sponsor, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), intend to use a tiered process to facilitate project decision-making. This notice revises the NOI that was published in the Federal Register on June 1, 2007. The proposed tiering approach will allow FHWA and ADOT to identify potential corridors and to broadly evaluate a range of potential environmental impacts and mitigation approaches in Tier 1. The Tier 1 analysis will utilize as appropriate technical data obtained thus far in the environmental review process. Subsequently, in Tier 2, the agencies will evaluate project-level, site-specific impacts, and required mitigation and commitments.
