Federal Register Notice – Open Docket for “13 Controlling Design Criteria and Related Exceptions”

Good morning all,

In yesterday’s Federal Register, FHWA published a notice requesting comments on revisions to the 13 controlling design of projects on the NHS that require a design exception when not met.  Given the expansion of the NHS with MAP-21, this notice is more applicable to local agencies than it would have been pre-MAP-21.  Comments are due to the do to the docket by December 7, 2015.

Comments may be submitted to the Federal eRulemaking portal at http://www.regulations.gov. All comments must include the docket number [FHWA Docket No. FHWA–2015–0020].

Attached is the Request for Comments – 13 Design Criteria Proposed Revisions


It’s been my experience that if you have an alternative approach, this process is a good avenue to express those comments.
