Subject: FEDERAL-AID POLICY GUIDE CHANGE
Date:
June 22, 1999
Transmittal Number 26

  1. PURPOSE. To transmit new and revised pages of the Federal-Aid Policy Guide (FAPG).

  2. COMMENTS. The FAPG is being revised to include changes to NS 49 CFR 24A and NS 49 CFR 24B, Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition for Federal and Federally Assisted Programs.

  3. REGULATORY MATERIAL. This transmittal contains no regulatory material.

  4. FINAL PRINTED FAPG TRANSMITTAL UPDATE. This is the final printed transmittal update to the FAPG. In Transmittal 23 dated June 17, 1998, the FHWA solicited comments regarding its plan to discontinue the distribution of printed transmittal updates to its external FAPG recipients. No comments were received from the external FAPG recipients during the sixty-day comment period. In view of the widespread access to the Internet and the substantial printing and distribution cost savings, the FHWA will no longer distribute printed transmittal updates to its external FAPG recipients. This action is consistent with the elimination of printed FAPG transmittal updates for FHWA staff, which was implemented in 1995. The future FAPG transmittal updates will continue to be available on the FHWA's Directives Website at: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/legsregs/elecdirs.htm. The external FAPG recipients are encouraged to visit the "What's New" page located at: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/new.html periodically for information concerning the posting of FAPG transmittal updates on the FHWA website.
