Background: Section 5513(f) of The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users of 2005 (SAFETEA–LU) provides a grant to the New England Transportation Institute (hence ‘‘the Institute’’) in White River Junction, Vermont, to conduct rural transportation research. The Institute will undertake research and analysis in support of two research issues: (1) Rural Transportation Issues Definition and Refinement; and (2) Rural Transportation Safety and Health. The research includes a 2-part survey to develop information that will help support a ‘‘portrait’’ of present rural transportation patterns. Applying the concepts of both ‘‘mobility’’ and ‘‘accessibility’’ to the rural Northeast, the Institute’s surveys will explore the issues of ‘‘rural isolation’’ and, driver travel behavior. The survey will address these questions: • How serious a problem is rural isolation and perceptions of access (or lack thereof)? • How are the economic forces acting on the rural areas affecting the manner, and length of trips in the rural Northeast? • How are demographics going to change and/or influence the demands made on the transportation system?

Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Federal Lands Highway Program. OMB Control #: 2125–0598. Background: Title 23 U.S.C. 204 requires the Secretary of Transportation and the Secretary of each appropriate Federal land management agency to develop, to the extent appropriate, safety, bridge, pavement, and congestion management systems for roads funded under the Federal Lands Highway Program (FLHP). A management system is a process for collecting, organizing, and analyzing data to provide a strategic approach to transportation planning, program development, and project selection. Its purposes are to improve transportation system performance and safety, and to develop alternative strategies for enhancing mobility of people and goods. This data collection clearance addresses the management systems for the National Park Service (NPS) and the Park Roads and Parkways (PRP) Program; Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and the Indian Reservation Roads (IRR) Program; Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the Refuge Roads (RR) Program; and Forest Service (FS) and the Forest Highway (FH) Program. Outputs from the management systems are important tools for the development of transportation plans and transportation improvement programs, and in making project selection decisions consistent with 23 U.S.C. 204. Further, management system outputs also provide important information to the FHWA for their stewardship and oversight roles for the Park Roads and Parkways, Indian Reservation Roads, Refuge Roads, and Forest Highway Programs. The data collection required to implement these management systems supports the DOT Strategic Objectives of Safety, Mobility, Environmental Stewardship, and PO 00000 Frm 00132 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20007 Organizational Excellence. The proposed data collection also directly supports the FHWA’s Vital Few Initiative of Safety, Congestion Mitigation, and Environmental Stewardship and Streamlining that represent the three most important strategic planning and performance goals for the agency. The National Park Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Fish and Wildlife Service, and Forest Service are continuing to implement the required management systems and the associated information collections. Completion of this phase-in of the management systems is expected to occur during the time period covered by this information collection, and the average annual burden estimates are based on expected increases in the overall burden over that time period. The management systems vary in complexity among the four agencies and reflect differences in the characteristics of the transportation systems involved such as size, ownership, and eligibility for inclusion in the program. These variations result in differences among the agencies in the expected number of respondents to the information collection, and in the anticipated time necessary to respond to the information collection. Typical information that might be collected for the management systems includes: • Traffic information including volumes, speeds, and vehicle classification; • Pavement features such as number of lanes, length, width, surface type, functional classification, and shoulder information; and pavement condition information such as roughness, distress, rutting, and surface friction; • Bridge features such as deck width, under/over-clearance, details of structural elements such as girders, joints, railings, bearings, abutments, and piers; and information on the condition of the bridge elements sufficient to describe the nature, extent, and severity of deterioration; • Safety information such as crash records, crash rates, and an inventory of safety appurtenances such as signs and guardrails; or • Congestion measures such as roadway level of service or travel delay. Respondents to the information collection might be collecting and submitting information in one or more of these categories for the portion of their transportation system that is covered under the FLHP. For example, this might include the collection and submission of information for State or county-owned roads that are Forest Highways, or Indian Reservation Roads E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1
