Title: MARAD Maritime Operator Survey Concerning Mariner Availability. OMB Control Number: 2133–0537. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Vessel operating companies representing different sectors of the U.S. maritime industry. Form(s): MA–1048. Abstract: Part of the stated statutory policy of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936, is to foster the development and maintenance of an adequate U.S.-flag merchant marine manned with trained and efficient citizen personnel. In order to successfully meet this mandate, MARAD must determine whether a current or projected shortage of mariners exists and if there is an operational or business impact on the merchant marine. MARAD believes that a brief preliminary survey is necessary at this time because it has received an abundance of anecdotal information indicating that there is a serious existing and projected mariner shortage in different market sectors. If the preliminary survey indicates that there is a projected shortage that appears to be more than short-term, MARAD will follow-up with a more detailed survey to analyze the shortage and ascertain the best means to address it. Annual Estimated Burden Hours: 33.

Comments Are Invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. A comment to OMB is best assured of having its full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication. By Order of the Maritime Administrator. Dated: September 22, 2011. Julie P.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed action evaluated in the 
Environmental Assessment (EA) includes construction of a multi-use 
trail facility following the Metro red line from Fort Totten to Takoma 
and the Metro green line from Fort Totten to the District border.
    This EA analyzed the potential impacts resulting from constructing 
and operating the MBT on sections of land owned by the NPS within the 
area north of Fort Totten (Reservation 451 West), the area east of Fort 
Totten (Reservation 451 East), the Community Gardens (Reservation 497), 
and Tacoma Park (Reservation 531). Following the public comment period, 
DDOT identified Alternatives A1, B1, C1 and/or C2 as the Preferred 
Alternatives.
    The FHWA has determined that the Preferred Alternative and options 
will not have a significant impact on the natural, human or built 
environment as defined by CEQ. This Finding of No Significant Impact 
(FONSI) is based on the findings of the proposed project's Final EA, 
and comments submitted during preparation of the EA. The Final EA has 
been evaluated by the FHWA, using CEQ regulations and FHWA and NPS 
guidelines, and determined to adequately discuss the need, 
environmental issues, and impacts of the proposed project and 
appropriate mitigation measures. It provides sufficient evidence and 
analysis for determining that an environmental impact statement is not 
required.
