Background

    The FHWA's Buy America policy in 23 CFR 635.410 requires a domestic 
manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including 
protective coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid 
construction project. The regulation also provides for a waiver of the 
Buy America requirements when the application would be inconsistent 
with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel 
and iron products are not sufficiently available. This notice provides 
information regarding FHWA's finding that a Buy America waiver is 
appropriate for use of a non-domestic Ferryboat Propulsion System 
(propeller, shafting, and reducing gear) for MV Matanuska ferry in the 
State of Alaska.
    In accordance with Division K, section 122 of the ``Consolidated 
and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2015'' (PL 113-235), FHWA 
published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site (https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/contracts/waivers.cfm?id=116) on 
December 8, 2015. The FHWA received no comments in response to the 
publication. Based on all the information available to the agency, FHWA 
concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers of Ferryboat 
Propulsion System (propeller, shafting, and reducing gear).
    In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the Safe, 
Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy 
for Users, Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-244, 122 
Stat. 1572), FHWA is providing this notice as its finding that a waiver 
of Buy America requirements is appropriate. The FHWA invites public 
comment on this finding for an additional 15 days following the 
effective date of the finding. Comments may be submitted to FHWA's Web 
site via the link provided to the waiver page noted above.

    Authority:  (23 U.S.C. 313; PL 110-161, 23 CFR 635.410)

    Issued on: February 4, 2016.
Gregory G. Nadeau,
Administrator, Federal Highway Administration.
