Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.


Notice of public meetings.


The FHWA published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) on February 6, 2002 (67 FR 5532), to obtain comments on the current work zone safety regulation. The purpose of the ANPRM was to seek comments regarding improvements that can be made to its regulation on Traffic Safety in Highway and Street Work Zones to better address work zone mobility and safety concerns. On June 6, 2002, the comment period closed, and the FHWA began to analyze the comments provided. This meeting is being held to highlight the reasons for the ANPRM, present a summary of the comments received, and discuss, based on the comments received, the possible impacts that a rulemaking might have on the current regulation.


The meetings will be held Thursday, August 29, Thursday, September 19, and Wednesday, September 25, 2002 from 10:00 to 2:00 p.m.
