Department of Transportation September 7, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2017-19018
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-09-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain General Electric Company (GE) CF6-80A, CF6-80A1, CF6-80A2, CF6- 80A3, CF6-80C2A1, CF6-80C2A2, CF6-80C2A3, CF6-80C2A5, CF6-80C2A5F, CF6- 80C2A8, CF6-80C2B1, CF6-80C2B1F, CF6-80C2B1F1, CF6-80C2B1F2, CF6- 80C2B2, CF6-80C2B2F, CF6-80C2B3F, CF6-80C2B4, CF6-80C2B4F, CF6-80C2B5F, CF6-80C2B6, CF6-80C2B6F, CF6-80C2B6FA, CF6-80C2B7F, CF6-80C2B8F, CF6- 80C2D1F, CF6-80C2L1F, and CF6-80C2K1F turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by an uncontained failure of a high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 2 disk. This proposed AD would require ultrasonic inspection (UI) of HPT stage 1 and 2 disks. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Notice of Funding Opportunity for the Department of Transportation's National Infrastructure Investments Under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017
Document Number: 2017-19009
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-09-07
Agency: Department of Transportation, Office of the Secretary of Transportation
The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (Pub. L. 115-31, May 5, 2017) (``FY 2017 Appropriations Act'' or the ``Act'') appropriated $500 million to be awarded by the Department of Transportation (``DOT'' or the ``Department'') for National Infrastructure Investments. This appropriation stems from the program funded and implemented pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the ``Recovery Act'') known as the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery, or ``TIGER Discretionary Grants,'' program. Because of the program's similarity in structure and widespread name recognition, DOT will continue to refer to the program as ``TIGER Discretionary Grants.'' Funds for the FY 2017 TIGER program (``TIGER FY 2017'') are to be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will have a significant impact on the Nation, a metropolitan area, or a region. The purpose of this Final Notice is to solicit applications for TIGER Discretionary Grants.

Hours of Service of Drivers: National Asphalt Pavement Association, Inc.; Application for Exemption
Document Number: 2017-18985
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-09-07
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that it has received an application from the National Asphalt Pavement Association, (Inc.) (NAPA) requesting exemptions from two requirements of the hours-of-service (HOS) regulations for drivers of certain commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) operated by NAPA members, the 30-minute rest break provision and the requirement that short-haul drivers utilizing the record of duty status (RODS) exception return to their work-reporting location within 12 hours of coming on duty. The first exemption would enable drivers engaged in the transportation of asphalt and related materials to use 30 minutes or more of on-duty ``waiting time'' to satisfy the requirement for the 30-minute rest break, provided they do not perform any other work during the break. The second exemption would allow these drivers to use the short-haul exception but return to their work- reporting location within 14 hours instead of the usual 12 hours. FMCSA requests public comment on NAPA's application for exemptions.

Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance; Willow Run Airport, Detroit, Michigan
Document Number: 2017-18323
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-09-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change 3.44 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at Willow Run Airport, Detroit, Michigan. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use. The property is located in the southwest corner of the airport. It is outside of the airport operations area and is currently used as a Hazardous Waste Landfill. In 1996 the Federal Aviation Administration released 13.34 acres on this site to accommodate the Landfill. This proposal will release the remainder of the site. The proposed use will remain as a Hazardous Waste Landfill.
