This will provide interested parties with an additional opportunity to submit projects for consideration and supplement existing submissions. The DOT may not consider responses submitted after November 17, 2014, so as to allow DOT to deliver the MAP–21 mandated report to Congress within a reasonable timeframe.

Background Section 1301 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) (Pub. L. 109–59; 119 Stat. 1144) established a program to provide grants to States for PNRS to improve the safe, secure, and efficient movement of people and goods throughout the United States and to improve the health and welfare of the national economy. Section 1120 of MAP–21 amended the PNRS program, including authorizing $500 million to carry out the program; however, no funds were appropriated for the program. Section 1120 of MAP– 21 requires DOT to develop a report to Congress that contains a comprehensive list of each PNRS. The comprehensive list will enable the Secretary of Transportation to classify PNRS and to develop recommendations on financing for eligible project costs. PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On May 29, 2014, FHWA, on behalf of DOT, launched the initial PNRS survey that closed on June 30, 2014. The survey was emailed to stakeholders in the categories identified as ‘‘eligible applicants’’ in MAP–21 (State departments of transportation (State DOT), tribal governments, and transit agencies). On June 3, 2014, FHWA hosted a Webinar to inform stakeholders on the background and purpose of the PNRS survey, program eligibility, and survey content. Twenty-seven States and several transit authorities participated in the original survey, submitting a total of 143 projects. While over half of the 50 States participated, many regions of the country provided limited or no participation. Therefore, the overall results were less than comprehensive. Purpose of This Notice The purpose of this notice is fourfold: (1) To define the PNRS Survey and project eligibility; (2) to re-open the PNRS Survey for a period of 45 calendar days (including Federal holidays); (3) to establish how DOT will conduct outreach with stakeholders and potential respondents; and (4) to provide additional guidance on responding to survey questions. PNRS Survey Section 1120 of MAP–21 requires the DOT to develop a report to Congress that contains a comprehensive list of each project of national and regional significance that has been compiled through a survey of State DOTs. The comprehensive list will enable the Secretary to classify PNRS and to develop recommendations on financing for eligible project costs. For purposes of the survey, Section 1120 of MAP–21 defines PNRS as projects that: • Significantly improve the national or regional performance of the Federalaid highway system; • Generate national economic benefits, including increased access to jobs and labor; • Reduce long-term congestion and increase the speed, reliability, and accessibility of the movement of people or freight; • Improve transportation safety, including reducing transportation accidents, serious injuries, and fatalities; and • Can be supported by an acceptable degree of non-Federal financial commitments. Using the PNRS project definitions above, the DOT is conducting a nationwide survey. Responses to the survey are voluntary and will be used by DOT to compile and submit the E:\FR\FM\02OCN1.SGM 02OCN1
