SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Heavy Vehicle Travel Information System (HVTIS). OMB Control Number: 2125–0587. Background: Title 49, United States Code, section 301, authorizes the DOT to collect statistical information relevant to domestic transportation. The FHWA is continuing to develop the HVTIS to house data that will enable analysis of the amount and nature of truck travel at the national and regional levels. The information will be used by the FHWA and other DOT agencies to evaluate changes in truck travel in order to assess impacts on highway safety; the role of travel in economic productivity; impacts of changes in truck travel on infrastructure condition; and maintenance of our Nation’s mobility while protecting the human and natural environment. The increasing dependence on truck transport requires that data be available to better assess its overall contribution to the Nation’s well-being. In conducting the data collection, the FHWA will be requesting that State Departments of Transportations (SDOTs) provide reporting of traffic volume, vehicle classification, and vehicle weight data which they collect as part of their existing traffic monitoring programs, including other sources such as local governments and traffic operations. States and local governments collect VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:00 Oct 05, 2010 Jkt 223001 traffic volume, vehicle classification data, and vehicle weight data throughout the year using weigh-inmotion devices. The data should be representative of all public roads within State boundaries. The data will allow transportation professionals at the Federal, State, and metropolitan levels to make informed decisions about policies and plans. Respondents: 52 SDOTs, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Frequency: Annually. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Each of the SDOTs already collect traffic data for various purposes. In accordance with 23 USC 303, each State has a Traffic Monitoring System in place so the data collection burden relevant for this notice is the additional burden for each State to provide a copy of their traffic data using the record formats specified in the Traffic Monitoring Guide. Automation and online tools continue to be developed in support of the HVTIS and the capability now exists for online submission and validation of total volume data. The estimated average monthly burden is 3.5 hours for an annual burden of 42 hours. The annual reporting requirement is estimated to be 6 hours for the States and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The combined burden from the monthly and annual reports is 48 hours per respondent. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Total burden will be 2,496 hours.

Section 141 also authorizes the Secretary to require States to file such information as is necessary to verify that their certifications are accurate. To determine whether States are adequately enforcing their size and weight limits, each must submit an updated plan for enforcing their size and weight limits to the FHWA at the beginning of each fiscal year. At the end of the fiscal year, they must submit their certifications and sufficient information to verify that their E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1
