Out-of-Service Criteria; Extension of Comment Period
Re-opening of docket; request for comments.
The FHWA is re-opening Docket No. FHWA-98-3414 for a period of sixty (60) days. On July 20, 1998, the FHWA published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) in which the agency sought comment concerning use of the ``North American Uniform Out-of-Service Criteria'' (OOS Criteria) (63 FR 38791). This action today is taken in response to a written request from the Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (AHAS). The FHWA has determined that re-opening the docket is appropriate given the complexity of the ANPRM and the need for informed public comment. The docket will be open for an additional period of 60 days.
