This memorandum is in response to the Buy America waiver request for the 1-1/4" diameter hollow rock anchor, which you submitted on behalf of Alaska DOT & Public Facility. The FHWA has completed a review process in compliance with the statutory requirement for the Secretary of Transportation, to implement an informal public notice and comment opportunity for each waiver request. Specifically, on March 6, 2008, the FHWA published a notice of this waiver request and received one comment. The comment received indicated that domestically produced 1-1/4" diameter hollow rock anchors are not available. Therefore, I approve this Buy America waiver request for Alaska DOT & Public Facility to use non-domestic 1-1/4" diameter hollow rock on Federal-aid project NH-0A1-5(17)/52507.
