DOT/FHWA RIN: 2125-AF80 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: Categorical Exclusions 
Abstract: This rulemaking would propose changes to 23 CFR part 771. Potential changes include: reorganization of FHWA's categorical exclusions (CEs) section; moving additional CEs from the d-list to the c-list; revising the timeframe for when an applicant is required to prepare a written re-evaluation from 3 years to 5 years; and revisiting language in 771.117(e) to potentially remove the constraints in paragraph (e) or exclude 4R projects and those adding or widening shoulders or adding guard rail improvements that cause shoulder widening from application of the subsection (e) constraints.
