SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Highway Safety Improvement Program. Background: The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act (Pub. L. 114–94) continues the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) as a core federal-aid program with the purpose to achieve a significant reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads, including non-State-owned public roads and roads on tribal lands. The HSIP requires a sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:14 Mar 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 data-driven, strategic approach to improving highway safety on all public roads that focuses on performance. The existing provisions of Title 23 U.S.C. 130, Railway-Highway Crossings Program, as well as implementing regulations in 23 CFR part 924, remain in effect. Included in these combined provisions are requirements for State DOTs to annually produce and submit to FHWA by August 31 reports related to the implementation and effectiveness of their HSIPs, that are to include information on: (a) Progress being made to implement HSIP projects and the effectiveness of these projects in reducing traffic fatalities and serious injuries [Sections 148(h)]; and (b) progress being made to implement the Railway-Highway Crossings Program and the effectiveness of the projects in that program [sections 130(g) and 148(h)], which will be used by FHWA to produce and submit biennial reports to Congress. To be able to produce these reports, State DOTs must have safety data and analysis systems capable of identifying and determining the relative severity of hazardous highway locations on all public roads, based on both crash experience and crash potential, as well as determining the effectiveness of highway safety improvement projects. FHWA provides an online reporting tool to support the annual HSIP reporting process. Additional information is available on the Office of Safety Web site at http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/hsip/ resources/onrpttool/. Reporting into the online reporting tool meets all report requirements and USDOT Web site compatibility requirements. The information contained in the annual HSIP reports provides FHWA with a means for monitoring the effectiveness of these programs and may be used by Congress for determining the future HSIP program structure and funding levels. Respondents: 51 State Transportation Departments, including the District of Columbia. Frequency: Annually. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 250 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 12,750 hours (51 states at an average of 250 hours each). Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the FHWA’s performance; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burdens; (3) ways for the FHWA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15415 electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information.
