This listing has been extracted from the National Hazardous Material Route Registry (NHMRR). The information contained in this notice supersedes that published at 63 FR 31549 on June 9, 1998. The periodic updating and publishing of this listing is required by the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act of 1975 (HMTA), as amended (49 U.S.C. 5112).
