Designation of the Primary Freight Network
The FHWA is extending the deadline and comment period for the Designation of the highway Primary Freight Network (PFN) notice, which was published on November 19, 2013, at 78 FR 69520. On December 11, 2013, the FHWA published a notice to extend the comment period at 78 FR 75442. The revised comment period is set to close on January 17, 2014. The extension is based on input received from DOT stakeholders that the January 17 closing date does not provide sufficient time for submission of comments to the docket. The FHWA agrees that the deadline and the comment period should be extended. Therefore, the closing date for submission of comments is extended to February 15, 2014, which will provide others interested in commenting additional time to submit comments to the docket.
