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 of 
trunnion bearings for emergency repair of Willow Avenue Lift Bridge in 
Cleveland, Ohio.
    In accordance with the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Pub. 
L. 114-113) and the Continuing Appropriations Act, 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=138 
on October 13th. 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 trunnion bearings 
for emergency repair of Willow Avenue Lift Bridge in the State of Ohio.
    The Ohio State DOT, contractors, and subcontractors involved in the 
procurement of bearing units, are reminded of the need to comply with 
the Cargo Preference Act in 46 CFR part 38, if applicable.
    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

    Dated: December 5, 2016.

Administrator, Federal Highway Administration.
