FMCSA Updates Hazmat Route Registry

Posted on 6/8/2020 by Lauren Scott

Last week the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) released new updates to the National Hazardous Materials Route Registry (NHMRR). The June 3, 2020 Federal Register notice revises the registry to reflect changes that were reported to FMCSA from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020.

What is the National Hazmat Route Registry?

The NHMRR is a listing of all United States road and highway designations and restrictions concerning the transport of hazardous materials by motor vehicle.

The restrictions apply to motor vehicles transporting hazardous materials in commerce for which placards are required. The regulations at 49 CFR 5112(a) and (b) also allow US DOT's Secretary to extend the route restrictions to any vehicle that transports a hazardous material in commerce.

Hazmat routes are reported by State and Tribal governments to ensure hazmat, logistics, and safety personnel can plan the safest route for hazmat transportation by highway. FMCSA published the full registry April 2015 and there have been three revisions since. The last update was made on September 24, 2019.
