SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Assessment and Delivery of Safety Funding at the Local Level. Type of request: New information collection requirement. Background: The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU), 23 U.S.C. 148, established the Highway Safety SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38127 Improvement Program (HSIP) as a core federal-aid highway program. The overall purpose of this program is to achieve a significant reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads through the implementation of infrastructure-related highway safety improvements. Using federal and state funds to assist local agencies in improving safety on local roads is critical for reducing fatalities and serious injuries. However, state and local agencies face many challenges and barriers when identifying, prioritizing, developing, and implementing safety projects on local roads. The requested information collection, in the form of an on-line survey tool, will be used to evaluate the extent, practices and processes state departments of transportation (DOTs) use to deliver or apply safety funding resources to local agencies for road safety improvement projects. The survey will also help identify challenges and barriers state DOTs and local agencies face when developing and implementing local road safety projects. Survey respondents will be asked to provide information about training, technical support, and human resources provided to, or on behalf of local agencies, to assist in the identification, analysis, development, evaluation, and implementation of local road safety improvement projects. Respondents will also be asked to identify any challenges or barriers states and local agencies face when attempting to provide funding and other resources for local road safety projects. Certain survey respondents will also be asked to provide feedback on federal or state fiscal year expenditures applied to local road safety improvement projects over a three-year period and any methodologies used to identify a specific dollar amount or percentage of funds set aside for those local road safety improvement projects. The information will allow FHWA to assess the extent to which states are providing funds to local agencies for safety projects, and to identify human resources and technical assistance states need in order to overcome barriers and challenges to developing and implementing local road safety improvement projects. The survey will also help FHWA identify noteworthy practices that can be implemented in other states, with the ultimate goal of improving highway safety outcomes across the Nation.
