SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Public Law 104–13, Section 2, 109 Stat. 163 (1995) (codified as revised at 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to issue two notices seeking public comment on information collection activities before OMB may approve paperwork packages. 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.5, 1320.8(d)(1), 1320.12. On March 7, 2019, published a 60-day notice (84 FR) in the Federal Register soliciting comments on the ICR that the agency was seeking OMB approval. FTA received no comments after issuing this 60-day notice. Accordingly, DOT announces that these information collection activities have been reevaluated and certified under 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and forwarded to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12(c). Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed collections of information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b); 5 CFR 1320.12(d). Federal law requires OMB to approve or disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30-day notice is published. 44 U.S.C. 3507 (b)–(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 60 FR 44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB believes that the 30-day notice informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a decision. 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents should submit their respective comments to OMB within 30 days of publication to best ensure having their full effect. 5 CFR 1320.12(c); see also 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. The summaries below describe the nature of the information collection requirements (ICRs) and the expected burden. The requirements are being submitted for clearance by OMB as required by the PRA. Title: Fixed Guideway Capital Investment Grants—New Starts Section 5309. PO 00000 Frm 00125 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 OMB Control Number: 2132–0561. Type of Request: Renewal of a previously approved information collection. Abstract: The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) administers the discretionary Capital Investment Grants (CIG) grant program under 49 U.S.C. Section 5309 that provides funding for major transit capital investments including rapid rail, light rail, commuter rail, bus rapid transit, and ferries. Three types of eligible projects are outlined in law: Smaller scaled corridor-based transit capital projects known as ‘‘Small Starts’’; new fixed guideway transit systems and extensions to existing fixed guideway systems known as ‘‘New Starts’’; and projects to improve capacity at least 10 percent in existing fixed guideway corridors that are at capacity today or will be in five years, known as ‘‘Core Capacity’’. The CIG program has a longstanding requirement that FTA evaluate proposed projects against a prescribed set of statutory criteria at specific points during the projects’ development including when they seek to enter a subsequent phase of the process or a construction grant agreement. The current Federal Public Transportation Law, 49 U.S.C. 5309, has not changed the statutorily defined project justification and local financial commitment criteria that are the subject of this information collection. In addition, the statutorily required approval steps for projects seeking CIG funds have not changed. Thus, the requirements for project evaluation and data collection for these proposed projects are not new and are unchanged. In general, the information used by FTA for CIG project evaluation and rating should arise as a part of the normal project planning process. FTA has been collecting information from project sponsors under the existing OMB approval for this program (OMB No. 2132–0561). Respondents: State and local government. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 155 respondents. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 68,840 hours. ADDRESSES: All written comments must refer to the docket number that appears at the top of this document and be submitted to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street NW, Washington, DC 20503, Attention: FTA Desk Officer. Alternatively, comments may be sent via email to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of E:\FR\FM\20MYN1.SGM 20MYN1

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by FHWA and other Federal 
agencies that are final. The actions relate to a proposed highway 
project for the Southern Extension of State Route (SR) 186 and the US 
45 Bypass from SR-1 (US 70/Airways Boulevard) to SR-5 (US 45/South 
Highland Avenue) on the south side of Jackson in Madison County, 
Tennessee. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for the 
project. The FHWA's Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) provides 
details on the Selected Alternative for the proposed improvements.

DATES: By this notice, FHWA is advising the public of final agency 
actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). A claim seeking judicial review 
of the Federal agency actions on the highway project will be barred 
unless the claim is filed on or before OCTOBER 17, 2019. If the Federal 
law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time period 
of less than 150 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that FHWA and other 
Federal agencies have taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 
139(l)(1) by issuing licenses, permits, and approvals for the following 
highway project in the State of Tennessee: Southern Extension of SR-186 
and the US 45 Bypass, Project Number HPP-NHE-1(225), PIN 109926.00, 
Madison County, Tennessee. The proposed action will improve local and 
regional mobility by providing an alternate route for through traffic 
separate from the developed commercial corridor along existing US 45. 
The Selected Alternative proposes the construction of two roadway 
sections within the project. The southern portion of the Bypass from 
north of Edwards Drive to Boone Lane consists of two 12-foot travel 
lanes in each direction, 6-foot inside shoulders, 12-foot outside 
shoulders, and a variable width depressed grass median, within an 
approximate 250-foot right-of-way (ROW). The northern portion of the 
Bypass from Boone Lane to Airways Boulevard consists of two 12-foot 
travel lanes in each direction, 7-foot inside shoulders, 12-foot 
outside shoulders, and center concrete barrier, within an approximate 
200-foot ROW. Portions of the corridor include: (1) An interchange with 
ramps on the southern terminus of the project at US 45/South Highland 
to provide unimpeded access for traffic on the existing US 45/South 
Highland continuing north on the proposed Bypass; (2) Access via at-
grade intersections for several local roads intersected by the proposed 
Bypass route, including: Raines Springs Road, D Street, Boone Lane, 
Riverside Drive, and Existing US 45 Bypass; (3) SR 18 Realignment 
(Raines Springs Road) from the existing SR 18 intersection with Old 
Malesus Road to north of the proposed US 45 Bypass. Raines Springs Road 
would be widened to two 12-foot travel lanes with a 12-foot center turn 
lane.

actions were taken, are described in the Environmental Assessment (EA)

approved on July 18, 2018, and in the FHWA FONSI issued on February 14, 
2019, and in other documents in the FHWA project records. The EA,
