Background: Section 1502 of SAFETEA–LU established the ‘‘Highways for LIFE’’ Program. The purpose of the Highways for LIFE program is to advance longer-lasting highways using innovative technologies and practices to accomplish the fast construction of efficient and safe highways and bridges. ‘‘Highways for LIFE’’ is focused on accelerating the rate of adoption of proven technologies. The program provides funding to States to accelerate technology adoption to construct, reconstruct, or rehabilitate Federal-aid highway projects that incorporate innovative technologies that will improve safety, reduce congestion due to construction, and improve quality. Those States interested in participating in the ‘‘Highways for LIFE’’ program would submit an application for project funding. The information to be provided on the application includes a description of the project, the innovative technologies to be used and a description of how these PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77587 technologies will improve safety, reduce construction congestion, and improve quality. The collected information will be used by FHWA to evaluate and select projects for ‘‘Highways for LIFE’’ funding. Respondents: The fifty State Departments of Transportation, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Frequency: Annually. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,460 for file maintenance and 52 State highway agencies for statistical reports. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 8 hours per respondent per application. Total Annual Burden: It is expected that the respondents will complete approximately 30 applications for an estimated 240 total annual burden hours.
