Notice of Proposed Rule Making as required by MAP21

Dear Transportation Partners:

Today, FHWA released the long awaited NPRM (Notice of Proposed Rule Making) on NHS Pavement and Bridge Performance Measures as required by MAP21.

You can read NPRM on the web-link of the federal register:

https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2015/01/05/2014-30085/national-performance-management-measures-assessing-pavement-condition-for-the-national-highway
FHWA is also hosting two webinars on 1/8/15 and 1/22/15 to discuss the NPRM. Please register for either one because they will cover the same materials. To register for Thursday, 1/8/2015, 3:00-5:00 EST, click here. To register for Thursday, 1/22/2015, 2:00-4:00 EST, click here. This NPRM has a 91-day comment period that will end on 04/06/2015.

It is important that we all pay close attention and actively participate in providing comments/feedback to this NPRM, as it will have a significant impact on how Federal-aid Highway Programs will be conducted.

Caltrans Local Assistance will strive to work with our local and regional transportation partners to provide analysis of the NPRM and to share our comments/feedback.

Stay tuned for more to come on these topics.
