ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves Certificated Training Centers. Operators pay Certificated Training Centers to provide training to their employees, typically pilots, on different types of equipment if training is not done in house. The information to be collected is necessary because it allows aviation safety inspectors (operations) to review and to provide surveillance to training centers to ensure compliance with airman training, testing, and certification requirements specified in other parts of the regulations. If the information were not collected, inspectors would not be able to determine if airmen who are clients are being trained, checked or tested to meet the safety standards established in other parts of the regulations. To date, FAA inspectors have used the information collected to determine and assess regulatory compliance during routine program surveillance. DATES: Written comments should be submitted by June 17, 2019. ADDRESSES: Please send written comments: By Electronic Docket: www.regulations.gov (Enter docket number into search field). By mail: Sandra Ray, Federal Aviation Administration, Policy Integration Branch AFS–270, 1187 Thorn Run Road, Suite 200, Coraopolis, PA 15108. By fax: 412–239–3063. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sandra Ray at (412) 329–3088, or by email at: Sandra.ray@faa.gov.

    17. FM 2514 from East of Lavon Parkway to Brown Street in Collin 
County, Texas. The proposed project would widen an existing two-lane 
roadway to a four-lane (ultimately six-lane) urban divided highway with 
a 14-foot outside shared-use lane and an 11-foot inside lane with a 40-
foot raised center median. The length of the proposed project is 
approximately 3.34 miles. The purpose of the proposed project is to 
reduce congestion and enhance safety. The actions by TxDOT and Federal 
agencies and the laws under which such actions were taken are described 
in the Final Environmental Assessment (EA) approved on February 5, 
2019, Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) issued on February 5, 
2019 and other documents in the TxDOT project file. The EA and other 
documents are available by contacting TxDOT at the address provided 
above or the TxDOT Dallas District Office at 4777 E Highway 80,

    18. IH 30 from Bass Pro Drive to West of FM 2642 Dallas and 
Rockwall Counties, Texas. Beginning at Bass Pro to Horizon, the 
proposed improvements would widen this existing section of the roadway 
to accommodate adding shoulders along the existing four mainlanes 
(currently 3 lanes and one auxiliary lane in each direction). From 
Dalrock Road to SH 205, the proposed improvements would reconstruct and 
widen this section from six mainlanes (3 lanes in each direction) to 
eight mainlanes (4 lanes in each direction), and would reconstruct the 
four discontinuous frontage roads (2 lanes in each direction) to six-
lane continuous frontage roads (3 lanes in each direction), to include 
bicycle and pedestrian accommodations crossing Lake Ray Hubbard. From 
SH 205 to West of FM 2642 (Hunt County Line), the proposed improvements 
would reconstruct and widen this section from four mainlanes (2 lanes 
in each direction) to six mainlanes (3 lanes in each direction), and 
would reconstruct the existing four lane frontage roads (two lanes in 
each direction). Other improvements for this project include the 
reconstruction of interchanges at Horizon Road, FM 548, and FM 35, 
construction of new interchanges at Ben Payne Road/Rochelle Road, 
Blackland Road, and Floyd Road (future Outer Loop), and associated ramp 
modifications. The length of the proposed project is approximately 17 
miles. The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce traffic 
congestion and improve mobility along IH-30 within the project limits. 
The actions by TxDOT and Federal agencies and the laws under which such 
actions were taken are described in the Final Environmental Assessment 
(EA) approved on March 19, 2019, Finding of No Significant Impact 
(FONSI) issued on March 19, 2019 and other documents in the TxDOT 
project file. The EA and other documents are available by contacting 
TxDOT at the address provided above or the TxDOT Dallas District Office 
at 4777 E Highway 80, Mesquite, TX 75150; telephone: (214) 320-4480.
    19. FM 16 from 4 miles west of FM 849 (CR 481-E) to US 69 in 
Lindale, Smith County, Texas. The project includes the resurfacing of 
the existing roadway from 4 miles west of FM 849

[[Page 16320]]

(CR 481-E) to approximately 1250 ft. west of CR 479. After resurfacing, 
this section would be striped to accommodate two 12-ft.-wide lanes in 
each direction with 2-ft.-wide shoulders. No capacity would be added or 
other improvements made within this section. The roadway, between the 
resurfaced section and US 69, would be reconstructed as either three-
lanes or five-lanes, as described below. The length of the project, 
including all transitions, is approximately 4.4 miles. From 
approximately 1250 ft. west of CR 479 to approximately 500 ft. west of 
the intersection with CR 436, FM 16 would be reconstructed as a three-
lane rural highway. From west of CR 436 to the future intersection with 
Toll 49, FM 16 would be reconstructed as a five-lane rural highway. 
From Toll 49 to US 69, FM 16 would be reconstructed as a five-lane 
urban section. The actions by TxDOT and Federal agencies and the laws 
under which such actions were taken are described in the Final 
Environmental Assessment approved on March 8, 2019, the Finding of No 
Significant Impact issued on March 8, 2019, and other documents in the 
TxDOT project file. The EA, FONSI and other documents in the TxDOT 
project file are available by contacting TxDOT at the address provided
