Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 196 / Tuesday, October 12, 2010 / Notices withhold as little as a portion of one page to multiple boxes of documents. NHTSA estimates that it will take on average approximately eight (8) hours for an entity to prepare a submission requesting confidential treatment. This estimate will vary based on the size of the submission, with smaller and voluntary submissions taking considerably less time to prepare. The agency based this estimate on the volume of requests received over the past three years. NHTSA estimates that it will receive approximately 450 requests for confidential treatment annually. This figure is based on the average number of requests received over the past three years. We selected this period because it provides an estimate based on incoming requests for the most recent three years. The agency estimates that the total burden for this information collection will be approximately 3,600 hours, which is based on the number of requests (450) multiplied by the estimated number of hours to prepare each submission (8 hours). Since nothing in the rule requires those persons who request confidential treatment pursuant to Part 512 to keep copies of any records or requests submitted to us, recordkeeping costs imposed would be zero hours and zero costs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FWHA, in cooperation with the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), will prepare an EIS on a proposal to address current and projected traffic demand on 1800 North (SR–37) in the cities of Clinton and Sunset in Davis County, Utah. The proposed project area extends from 2000 West to I–15 along 1800 North, a distance of approximately 2 miles. Transportation improvements in this area are needed to address current and projected 2040 traffic demand along the existing two-lane 1800 North corridor, provide better east-west access, and improve safety. The FHWA will consider a reasonable range of alternatives that meet the project purpose and need and are based on agency and public input. These alternatives include: (1) Taking no action; (2) using alternate travel modes; (3) upgrading and adding lanes to the existing roadway network, including 1800 North; (4) a grade separation at the Union Pacific Railroad crossing on 1800 North; (5) a new interchange on I–15 at 1800 North; (6) improving adjacent interchanges on I–15; (7) combinations of any of the above; and (8) other feasible alternatives identified during the scoping process. A Coordination Plan is being prepared to define the agency and public participation procedure for the environmental review process. The plan will outline how agencies and the public will provide input during the scoping process, the development of the SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\12OCN1.SGM 12OCN1
