Office hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: ‘‘Right-of-Way Cost Estimation Processes; State of the Practice’’. Government agencies that acquire real property for a Federal-aid highway program typically consider the cost of many alternatives for a potential project. As a part of this consideration, estimates of the cost of right-of-way needed for potential highway alignments must be determined and documented. Agencies may use several different methods to determine the estimate and document these costs. The methods range from a process using only paper and pencil, all the way to a process utilizing Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping and electronic data capture methods. The electronic methods presumably include an electronic calculation method which tabulates and calculates total costs, area to be acquired, and the numbers of relocations of residential and business property owners and tenants. Utilizing the paper-based method necessarily requires manual collection, organization and calculation which are likely expensive and inefficient, both in terms of dedicated staff time and dollars spent. Respondents: Each State DOT will be asked to respond, as well as a limited number (5–10) of local government agencies that have large and complex transportation programs. Each invited agency will be asked to respond to a one-time survey containing questions about the agency’s ROW cost estimation process and management. Frequency: There will be one survey only. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 8–16 personhours to fully and accurately respond to the survey, depending on the size and complexity of an individual agency’s transportation program. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 900 hours. (This is the estimated total burden, for approximately 60 State and local PO 00000 Frm 00146 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3255 government transportation agencies to respond to a single survey). 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 electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection. Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Travel Monitoring Analysis System (TMAS), OMB Control Number: 2125–0587. Background: Title 49, United States Code, Section 301, authorizes the DOT to collect statistical information relevant to domestic transportation. The FHWA is continuing to develop the TMAS to house data that will enable analysis of the amount and nature of both vehicular and nonmotorized travel at the national and regional levels. The information will be used by the FHWA and other DOT agencies to evaluate changes in vehicular and nonmotorized travel to assess impacts on highway safety, national travel trend, national travel demand, the role of travel in economic productivity, impacts of changes in truck travel on infrastructure condition, and maintenance of our Nation’s mobility while protecting the human and natural environment. The increasing dependence on truck transport requires that data be available to better assess its overall contribution to the Nation’s well-being. In conducting the data collection, the FHWA will be requesting that State Departments of Transportations (SDOTs) report traffic volume, vehicle classification, vehicle weight data and nonmotorized data which they collect as part of their existing traffic monitoring programs, including other sources such as local governments and traffic operations. States and local governments collect nonmotorized and motorized traffic volume, vehicle classification data, and vehicle weight data throughout the year using detection devices. The data should be representative of all public roads within State boundaries. The data will allow transportation professionals at the Federal, State, and metropolitan levels VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:59 Jan 22, 2018 Jkt 244001 to make informed decisions about policies and plans. Respondents: 52 SDOTs, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Frequency: Annually. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Each of the SDOTs already collect traffic data for various purposes. In accordance with 23 U.S.C. 303, each State has a Traffic Monitoring System in place so the data collection burden relevant for this notice is the additional burden for each State to provide a copy of their traffic data using the record formats specified in the Traffic Monitoring Guide. Automation and online tools continue to be developed in support of the TMAS and the capability now exists for online submission and validation of total volume data. The estimated average monthly burden is 2.5 hours for an annual burden of 30 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Total burden will be 1560 hours. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the U.S. DOT’s performance, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the U.S. DOT’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information.
