Comments Sought on Updated National HazMat Route Registry

Posted in on Thu, Jul 17, 2014

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has published a notice and request for comment on its updated National Hazardous Materials Route Registry (NHMRR), which is a listing of all designated and restricted road and highway routes for highway route controlled quantities (HRCQ) of Class 7 (radioactive) materials (RAM) (HRCQ/RAM) and non-radioactive hazardous materials (NRHMs) transportation.  It also provides the limitations for using these routes. FMCSA developed this listing based on information received from state and tribal government routing agencies as of January 31, 2014.  FMCSA presents the updated information with a new route-ordering format and changes to the table structure intended to improve the NHMRR usability for commercial drivers who must transport hazardous materials (HM) in compliance with routing requirements.  Current information on state and tribal routing agency contacts is also included.  FMCSA requests comment on the new route ordering approach, table structure and content, and other related specific route issues from Alaska, California, Colorado, and Texas, and the District of Columbia.  The effective date is July 14, 2014.
