Type: Notice
Date: 2017-05-03
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
The FHWA is issuing this notice of cancellation on behalf of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) pursuant to federal law and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 14, 2016 to advise the public that an Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed SR 388 from SR 79 in Bay County, Florida westward to SR 30 (US 98) in Walton County, Florida (also identified as West Bay Parkway, Segment 1 and CR 388 Segment 1) will no longer be prepared due to the implementation of the Bay-Walton Sector Plan, SAJ-114, and associated biological assessment that was completed for the study area. This is a formal cancellation of the Notice of Intent that was published in the Federal Register on October 4, 2011 (Doc. No. 2011-25360).
Proposed Amendment of Class D and E Airspace: Battle Creek, MI
Document Number: 2017-08856
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class D airspace, and Class E airspace designated as an extension at W.K. Kellogg Airport (formerly W.K. Kellogg Field), Battle Creek, MI. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Battle Creek VHF Omnidirectional Range Collocated Tactical Air Navigation System (VORTAC), and cancellation of the VOR approaches. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface also would be amended due to the redesign of the Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach, thereby removing reference to the BATOL navigation aid and Battle Creek ILS localizer. This action would also update the geographic coordinates of the airport, as well as make an editorial change replacing Airport/ Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the associated Class D and E airspace areas.
