Document Number: 2017-00550
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-01-18
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation

The FHWA issues this final rule based on sec. 1203 of MAP-21, which identifies national transportation goals and requires the Secretary to promulgate rules to establish performance measures and standards in specified Federal-aid highway program areas.
