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 iron and steel components in brake 
assembly with 5'' mill duty shoe, machinery rod ends with 2'' bore, 
static load capacity 378955 lb. for rehabilitation of Cow Bayou Swing 
Bridge in the State of Texas.
    In accordance with the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 
(Pub. L. 114-113) and the Continuing Appropriations Act of 2017 (Pub. 
L. 114-223), FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its 
Web site: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/contracts/waivers.cfm?id=135 on September 21st. 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 
brake assembly with 5'' mill duty shoe, machinery rod ends with 2'' 
bore, static load capacity 378955 lb. for rehabilitation of Cow Bayou 
Swing Bridge in the State of Texas.
    In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the SAFETEA-LU 
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; Pub. L. 110-161, 23 CFR 635.410)
