In a Federal Register notice published on March 21, 2014 (Vol. 79, No. 55), the Federal Transit Administration announced that in response to the MTA Capital Construction Company's (MTACC) request for a Buy America waiver for the pad and rubber boot of a concrete block for the Low Vibration Track (LVT) system that it is constructing on behalf of New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority's (MTA) operating agency, New York City Transit (NYCT), it is waiving its Buy America requirements on the basis of non-availability for the pad and rubber boot-components of the concrete blocks used in MTA's LVT system. This waiver is limited to Phase 1 of the Second Avenue Subway Project and is valid only for the pads and rubber boots already procured for this project.
