Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period lotter on DSK9F5VC42PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:21 Jun 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on March 31, 2020 (85 FR 17941). 14 CFR part 107 requires that a small unmanned aircraft accident be reported if it causes: (1) Serious injury to any person or any loss of consciousness; or (2) damage to any property, other than the small unmanned aircraft, unless the cost of repair or fair market value in the event of total loss does not exceed $500. The information collected by the FAA through its DroneZone web portal, Flight Standards District Offices, or one of the Regional Operations Centers or the Washington Operations Center for each small UAS accident will be used to investigate and determine regulatory compliance. In addition, the accident information will go into the FAA aircraft accident database for safety analysis purposes by the FAA Office of Accident Investigation and Analysis, pursuant to its statutory safety mission. As is currently the case for manned aircraft accidents, small UAS accident data will be made available to the public and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Respondents: Approximately 35 per year. Frequency: On occasion. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 15 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 8.75 hours.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT), initiated an EIS. Improvements for this corridor were considered necessary to accommodate the existing and projected traffic demands, and to address safety and reliability. The project area is composed predominantly of a steep, rocky area known as the Pali area and a coastal plain. Due to the topography, the estimated project construction cost for any build alternative would likely be substantial, and because of limited funding availability, HDOT has decided not to proceed with the project. Therefore, the preparation of the EIS is being terminated. (Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Program Number 20.205, Highway Planning and Construction.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT), initiated an EIS with an NOI published in the Federal Register on November 17, 2009, at 67 FR 38310, to prepare an EIS. The EIS identified three build alternatives within the initial project limits which varied from 6.3 miles to 6.9 miles in total length. An extensive Archaeological Inventory Survey (AIS) which covered 552 acres was conducted and resulted in the identification of 52 newly identified possible historic properties and 11 previously identified historic properties within or in the proximity of the study corridor. The AIS revealed that the three build alternatives all would have impacts on archaeological and historic resources and a Section 4(f) use would likely occur. A shorter avoidance alternative approximately 2.5 miles in total length was identified, however public opinion favors a considerably longer alternative not within the current project area and above the limited funding resources currently available. Therefore, HDOT has decided not to pursue the project and the preparation of the EIS is being terminated.
