The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and GSA have partnered to develop a program of projects at a number of Land Ports of Entry (LPOEs) so that FMCSA agents can safely and effectively inspect both commercial truck and bus traffic.

The views and comments of the public are necessary to help determine the scope and content of the environmental analysis.
