Motor-fuel data are used in PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 attributing receipts to the Highway Trust Fund and subsequently in the apportionment formula that are used to distribute Federal-Aid Highway Funds. The data are published annually in the FHWA’s Highway Statistics. Information from Highway Statistics is used in the joint FHWA and Federal Transit Administration required biennial report to Congress, Status of the Nation’s Highways, Bridges, and Transit: Conditions and Performance, which contrasts present status to future investment needs. Respondents: State and local governments of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Marianas, and the Virgin Islands share this burden. Estimated Average Burden per Response: The estimated average reporting burden per response for the annual collection and processing of the data is 754 hours for each of the States (including local governments), the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Marianas, and the Virgin Islands.

This data is essential to the FHWA and Congress in evaluating the effectiveness of the Federal-aid highway program. The HPMS also provides miles, lane-miles and travel components of the FederalAid Highway Fund apportionment formulae. The data that is required by the HPMS is continually reassessed and streamlined by the FHWA. Respondents: State governments of the 50 States, the District of Columbia the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Estimated Average Burden per Response: The estimated average burden per response for the annual collection and processing of the HPMS data is 1,440 hours for each State, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

The project is located outside coastal zone jurisdiction. The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission (SCCRTC) is proposing to widen SR 1 by adding an auxiliary lane to both northbound and southbound sides between the 41st Avenue and Soquel Drive interchanges. The new auxiliary lanes would be 12 feet wide. In the northbound direction, the project proposes to pave a 10-footwide median shoulder and widen the roadway to the outside in order to add the 12-foot-wide auxiliary lane and a new 10-foot-wide shoulder. In the southbound direction, the width needed for the new lane would be added in the median, and the median barrier would be shifted approximately five feet toward the northbound side of the freeway to make room for the new lane and a standard 10-foot-wide shoulder. Where the new southbound lane meets the existing ramps, outside shoulder widening would occur to achieve standard 10-foot-wide shoulders. The project would also include the construction of required retaining walls and a pedestrian/bicycle overcrossing at Chanticleer Avenue. The Final Tier I/ Tier II Environmental Assessment (EA)/ Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is a joint project by Caltrans, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission (SCCRTC) and is subject to state and federal environmental review requirements. FHWA and Caltrans jointly prepared the Final EA/EIR pursuant to the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Caltrans is the lead agency under CEQA. The FHWA is the lead agency under NEPA. The Tier I project proposes to widen approximately 8.9 miles of SR 1 in order to provide high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, auxiliary lanes, pedestrian overcrossings, and related improvements in the County of Santa Cruz, State of California. The actions by the Federal agencies, and the laws SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8391 under which such actions were taken, are described in the Final EIR/EA for the project, approved on January 3, 2019, in the FHWA Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), issued on December 17, 2018, and in other documents in the FHWA project records.
