Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION:

Correction to final rule.

SUMMARY:

This document corrects a typographical error in the FHWA final rule, published jointly with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), on October 7, 2002, at 67 FR 62370. The final rule amends the regulation on Planning and Assistance Standards that govern the development of transportation plans and programs for urbanized (metropolitan) areas. The FTA has codified the FHWA regulations for Metropolitan Transportation Planning and Programming into its regulations at 49 CFR 613 and joins the FHWA in making this change. The final rule provides the New York City metropolitan area additional time to review and update its transportation plan by waiving the regulatory requirement for a triennial plan update for the New York City metropolitan area for up to three years, until September 30, 2005. The docket number that appeared at the heading of the final rule was incorrect. This notice provides the current docket number regarding the Metropolitan Transportation Planning and Programming final rule as FHWA-2001-10836.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

October 7, 2002.

Background

On October 7, 2002, at 67 FR 62370, the FHWA, jointly with the FTA, issued a final rule to provide the New York City metropolitan area additional time to review and update its transportation plan by waiving the regulatory requirement for a triennial plan update for the New York City metropolitan area for up to three years, until September 30, 2005. This action was necessary because the New York City Metropolitan Transportation Council's (NYMTC) offices were destroyed by the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, and without this waiver, Federal highway and transit funding could be disrupted after September 30, 2002. The purpose of this notice is to correct the docket number to the final rule. The correct docket number for the final rule is FHWA-2001-10836.
