DOT/FHWA RIN: 2125-AF24 Publication ID: Spring 2015 
Title: +National Tunnel Inspection Standards (MAP-21) 

This rulemaking revises 23 CFR Part 650--Bridges, Structures, and Hydraulics, by adding the National Tunnel Inspection Standards (NTIS) under subpart E. The NTIS is modeled after the existing National Bridge Inspection Standards and includes requirements for, among other things, inspection procedures, the qualifications and training of inspectors, and a National Tunnel Inventory. MAP-21 broadened FHWA´s authority to include all highway tunnels. In addition, it made a number of changes to the NBIS, upon which this rulemaking is based.
