The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Barbara Hall at (940) 594–5913, or by email at: Barbara.L.Hall@faa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 2120–0746. Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this generic information collection. Type of Review: Renewal of a generic information collection. Background: The information collection activity will garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information will not be used for quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous designs that address: The target population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing potential nonresponse bias, the protocols for data collection, and any testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:42 Dec 14, 2017 Jkt 244001 fielding the study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results. Respondents: Approximately 11,000 Individuals and Households, Businesses and Organizations, State, Local or Tribal Government. Frequency: Once per request. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 10 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1833 hours. Issued in Fort Worth, TX, on December 8, 2017. Barbara L.

The project spans multiple local jurisdictions, including City of Boise, City of Eagle, City of Meridian, City of Nampa, Ada County, and Canyon County. The project would widen the highway from a two lane, mostly rural road; to an urban six travel lane divided median arterial with a minimum median width of four feet, including 23 signalized intersections. Additional ROW would be acquired so the road and intersections could be widened varying in width from 140 feet to 200 feet. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:42 Dec 14, 2017 Jkt 244001 Improvements would also extend onto cross streets; for example, cross streets will be widened, right turn lanes may be added and sidewalks may wrap around and extend for a short distance onto the cross streets.
