Mahorney, Office of Freight Management and Operations, HOFM–1, (202) 366–6817, Department of Transportation, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC, 20590. Office hours are from 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Truck Parking Initiative. OMB Control Number: 2125–0610. Background The shortage of long-term truck parking on the National Highway System (NHS) is a problem that needs to be addressed. It is nationally recognized that truck drivers frequently cannot find adequate, safe parking in order to obtain rest needed to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and ensure safety. Further, parking areas are often designed or maintained for short-term parking only, and as a result, allow parking for limited time periods. Section 1305 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) directed the Secretary of Transportation to establish a Pilot program to address the long-term parking shortages along the NHS. Eligible projects under Section 1305 include: 1. Promoting the real-time dissemination of publicly or privately provided commercial motor vehicle parking availability on the NHS using ITS and other means; 2. Opening non-traditional facilities to commercial motor vehicle parking, including inspection and weigh stations, and park and ride facilities; 3. Making capital improvements to public commercial motor vehicle parking facilities currently closed on a seasonal basis to allow the facilities to remain open year round; 4. Constructing turnouts along the NHS to facilitate commercial motor PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55267 vehicle access to parking facilities, and/ or improving the geometric design of interchanges to improve access to commercial motor vehicle parking facilities; 5. Constructing commercial motor vehicle parking facilities adjacent to commercial truck stops and travel plazas; 6. Constructing safety rest areas that include parking for commercial motor vehicles. It is the belief of FHWA that given the limited resources available, the broad dissemination of the availability of public or private long-term parking spaces provides the greatest opportunity to maximize the effectiveness of this pilot program. Guidelines and Administration To administer this program for fiscal years 2006 through 2009, the FHWA will collect information necessary to evaluate and rank projects. The information collection is intended to only address the project funding allotted through the program. 1. The Administrator has determined that $5.385 million is available for grants in FY 2006 under Section 1305, after obligation limitations. 2. Projects funded under this section shall be treated as projects on a FederalAid System under Chapter 1 of Title 23, U.S. Code. 3. Grants may be funded at an 80 to 100 percent funding level based on the criteria specified in Section 120 of Title 23, U.S. Code. As soon as practicable, a Federal Register Notice will be published with information and guidance relating to the application process. Also, a solicitation letter will be sent to all FHWA Division Offices containing the same information. This information will also be posted on the FHWA Web site, https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/. All applications must be submitted through a State Department of Transportation to FHWA’s Office of Freight Management and Operations, via the FHWA Division Office in the State in which the application was submitted. Awarded projects will be administered by the applicable State Department of Transportation as a Federal-aid grant. Information Proposed for Collection Information recommended under SAFETEA–LU and proposed for the current program includes the following: 1. Project Description. The proposal should include a detailed project description, which would include the extent of the long-term truck parking shortage in the corridor/area to be addressed, along with contact E:\FR\FM\21SEN1.SGM 21SEN1
