Federal Highway Administration 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Projects of National and Regional Significance Evaluation and Rating
Document Number: E6-22322
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-28
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
The FHWA is reopening the comment period for the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) and request for comments, which was published on July 24, 2006, at 71 FR 41748. That NPRM proposed to establish the required evaluation and rating guidelines for projects proposed under the Projects of National and Regional Significance (PNRS) program. The original comment period closed on September 22, 2006. The extension is based on the desire of the FHWA to receive the fullest and most comprehensive comments possible from the broadest group of stakeholders. During the initial analysis of comments the FHWA recognized that a number of subject areas were not commented upon, and significant segments of the transportation stakeholder community did not respond. The FHWA believes that those interested in commenting on this important program may not have had the opportunity to provide comments and that the comment period should be reopened. Therefore, the comment period is being reopened until February 9, 2007, which will provide those interested in commenting additional time to discuss, evaluate, and submit responses to the docket.
Value Pricing Pilot Program Participation, Fiscal Years 2007-2009
Document Number: E6-21912
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-12-22
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice invites State and local governments and other public authorities to apply to participate in the Value Pricing Pilot (VPP) program and presents guidelines for program applications. This notice supersedes two previous notices about the VPP program under the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) published in the Federal Register on January 6, 2006 (71 FR 970), and July 17, 2006 (71 FR 40578). The primary purpose of superseding the previous notices with this new notice is to shift the focus on the types of VPP program projects being solicited to achieve consistency with the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) National Strategy to Reduce Congestion on America's Transportation Network (DOT Congestion Initiative), announced on May 16, 2006.\1\ This national strategy contains a number of elements that involve pricing, thus warranting a reconsideration of the types of projects solicited for VPP program participation. This solicitation aligns the VPP program with the DOT Congestion Initiative by together seeking to support metropolitan areas in systemically progressing toward implementation of broad congestion pricing strategies in the near term. This notice also describes the statutory basis for the VPP program and specifies all of the steps necessary to apply for funding and, where applicable, tolling authority under the program. A new application deadline is also provided.

Document Number: E6-21581
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
The FHWA is issuing this notice to announce the final list of nationally and exceptionally significant features of the Federal Interstate Highway System.

In developing the final list, the FHWA considered public comments received on the preliminary list of exceptional elements, which was published in the Federal Register on June 16, 2006 (71 FR 34988). This notice summarizes those comments. Exemptions of the Interstate Highway System from consideration as historic property under the provisions of section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966 \1\ will not apply to the elements on this list.
Temporary Traffic Control Devices
Document Number: E6-21579
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
The FHWA is extending the comment period for a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) and request for comments, which was published on November 1, 2006, at 71 FR 64173. The original comment period is set to close on January 2, 2007. The extension is based on concern expressed by the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (NCUTCD) that the January 2 closing date does not provide sufficient time for discussion of the issues in committee and a subsequent comprehensive response to the docket. The FHWA recognizes that others interested in commenting may have similar time constraints and agree that the comment period should be extended. Therefore, the closing date for comments is changed to February 16, 2007, which will provide the NCUTCD and others interested in commenting additional time to discuss, evaluate, and submit responses to the docket.
