materials related to the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century 
Act (MAP-21) Comprehensive Truck Size and Weight Limits Study, which 
were referenced in a notice published on November 29, 2013, at 78 FR 
71707. The original meeting notice asked for comments by January 3, 
2014. The extension is based on input received from DOT stakeholders 
that the January 3, 2014 closing date does not provide sufficient time 
for submission of comments to the Department. The FHWA agrees that the 
deadline and the comment period should be extended. Therefore, the 
closing date for submission of comments on the materials is extended to 
January 17, 2014. Late-filed comments received after this date will be 
considered to the fullest extent practicable until January 31, 2014. 
This will provide others interested in commenting additional time to 
submit comments while maintaining the schedule required to deliver this 
study to Congress within the required timeframe.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before January 17, 2014 for full 
consideration. Late-filed comments received after this date will be 
considered to the fullest extent practicable, until January 31, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Comments should be sent to:
    Email: CTSWStudy@dot.gov.
    Mail: Federal Highway Administration, Office of Freight Management 
and Operations, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., E84-471, Washington, DC 
20590.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On November 29, 2013, at 78 FR 71707, the FHWA published in the 
Federal Register a notice to announce two upcoming public meetings on 
the MAP-21 Comprehensive Truck Size and Weight Limits Study and to 
announce the comment period for certain material related to the study. 
These materials included draft Desk Scans, project plans, selected 
truck configurations, and an updated project schedule. The materials 
have been posted at: http://www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/freight/sw/map21tswstudy/index.htm.
    The original comment period for the materials referenced in the 
notice closes on January 3, 2014. However, DOT stakeholders have 
indicated that this closing date does not provide sufficient time for 
submission of comments to the Department. To allow time for interested 
parties to submit comments, while maintaining the schedule required to 
deliver this Study to Congress within the required timeframe, the 
closing date is changed from January 3, 2014, to January 17, 2014. In 
addition late-filed comments will be considered to the fullest extent 
practicable, until January 31, 2014.

    Authority:  Section 32801 of Pub. L. 112-141.

    Dated: December 13, 2013.
Jeffrey Lindley,
FHWA Associate Administrator for Operations.
