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 non-domestic motor and machinery brake systems 
(maximum torque 100 ft-lb, wheel size 8 inches) for rehabilitation of a 
bascule bridge in Port Clinton, Ohio.
    In accordance with Division K, section 122 of the Consolidated and 
Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2015 (Pub. L. 113-235), FHWA 
published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site (http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/contracts/waivers.cfm?id=121 ) on March 
22nd. 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 motor and machinery brake 
systems (maximum torque 100 ft-lb, wheel size 8 inches) for 
rehabilitation of the bascule bridge in Port Clinton, Ohio.
    In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the SAFETEA-LU 
Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-244), FHWA is providing 
this notice 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; Public Law 110-161, 23 CFR 635.410.

    Issued on: May 9, 2016.
Gregory G. Nadeau,
Administrator, Federal Highway Administration.
