(the Line). SRNJ states that the Line includes a public delivery track connected to the Salem Running Track near its northern terminus but does not include the Penns Grove Wye. According to SRNJ, it is entering into a lease agreement and an interchange agreement with Conrail, which would allow SRNJ to operate over the Line and interchange railcars with Conrail at an interchange track located in the City of Woodbury. SRNJ certifies that its projected revenues will not exceed those that would qualify it as a Class III rail carrier and will not exceed $5 million. SRNJ states that the agreement does not involve a provision or agreement that may limit future interchange with a third party connecting carrier. The transaction may be consummated on or after May 2, 2018, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice was filed).2 If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions to stay must be filed no later than April 24, 2018 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective). An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36172, must be filed with the Surface 1 SRNJ states that Conrail is indirectly owned by CSX Corporation and Norfolk Southern Corporation. 2 SRNJ has requested that the effective date of the exemption be advanced to May 1, 2018, so that operations may commence on that date. This request will be addressed in a separate decision. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:20 Apr 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20423–0001.

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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:20 Apr 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 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 1,560 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.
