[Docket No. FHWA-2013-0050]


Designation of the Primary Freight Network

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of extension of deadline and comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On November 19, 2013, at 78 FR 69520, the FHWA published in the 
Federal Register a notice on the designation of the highway PFN.
    The purpose of the notice was to publish the draft initial 
designation of the highway PFN as required by 23 U.S.C. 167(d), provide 
information regarding State designation of Critical Rural Freight 
Corridors (CRFCs) and the establishment of the complete National 
Freight Network (NFN), and to solicit comments on aspects of the NFN. 
The five areas for comment are: (1) Specific route deletions, 
additions, or modifications to the draft initial designation of the 
highway PFN contained in this notice; (2) the methodology for achieving 
a 27,000-mile final designation; (3) how the NFN and its components 
could be used by freight stakeholders in the future; (4) how the NFN 
may fit into a multimodal National Freight System; and (5) suggestions 
for an urban-area route designation process.
    On December 11, 2013, the FHWA published a notice to extend the 
comment period at 78 FR 75442. The revised comment period for the 
notice closes on January 17, 2014. However, DOT stakeholders have 
expressed concern that this closing date does not provide sufficient 
time for submission of comments to the docket. To allow time for 
interested parties to submit comments, the closing date is changed from 
January 17, 2014 to February 15, 2014.

    Authority: 23 U.S.C. 167; Section 1115 of Pub. L. 112-141.

    Issued on: January 14, 2014.
Gregory G. Nadeau,
Deputy Administrator, Federal Highway Administration.
