Download as PDF 38178 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 135 / Monday, July 19, 2021 / Notices online at https://www.faa.gov/forms/ index.cfm/go/document.information/ documentID/1020386. The completed application is sent to the district office that has jurisdiction over the area in which the applicant’s home base of operation is located. The information collected includes: Type of application, operator’s name/ DBA, telephone number, mailing address, physical address of the principal base of operations, chief pilot/ designee name, airman certificate grade and number, and aircraft make/model and registration numbers to be used. This information collection also includes safety mitigation plans; plans for operations over congested areas; and recordkeeping requirements. Respondents: There are 1,763 active agricultural aircraft operators. Approximately 50 operators are certificated annually, and approximately 50 certificates are surrendered or revoked. Frequency: New applications when needed; current 14 CFR part 137 certificate do not expire, but may need to be amended on occasion. Estimated Average Burden per Response: The FAA anticipates 100 applications for new certificates, at 0.5 hours each; 100 applications for amendment, at 0.5 hours each; 100 petitions for exemption, at 0.5 hours each; and 350 submissions of plans for operations over congested areas, at 0.5 hours each. The total reporting burden is thus 650 responses and 325 hours. All operators certificated under part 137 are required to maintain certain records for a minimum of 12 months. The FAA estimates this recordkeeping burden at 4.5 hours per operator. Assuming a universe of 1,763 operators, the annual recordkeeping burden is 7,934 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 325 reporting hours + 7,934 recordkeeping hours = 8,259 total hours.

in Dallas County, Texas. The proposed project would widen Merritt Road 
to a four-lane divided roadway consisting of 12-foot wide inside travel 
lane and a 14-foot wide shared use lane in each direction. A six-foot 
wide sidewalk would be constructed along the east side of the roadway 
and a 12-foot shared-use path would be constructed along the west side. 
The total project length is approximately 1.6 miles. The purpose of the 
proposed project is to improve mobility, improve roadway safety 
characteristics, and better manage traffic operations on Merritt Road.

actions were taken are described in the Categorical Exclusion 
Determination issued on April 19, 2021, and other documents in the

    4. FM 523 from SH 332 to FM 1495, Brazoria County, Texas. The 
project proposes to reconstruct and widen FM 523 within the described 
limits from two 11-foot lanes to four 12-foot lanes (two lanes in each 
direction) with a continuous 16-foot center turn lane and 10-foot 
shoulders. The project is located between the cities of Freeport and 
Oyster Creek in southeast Brazoria County. The project would be 1.4 
miles in length and would require no new right of way, although 0.09 
acre of temporary construction easements would be required at the 
intersection of FM 523 and Dow Levee Road. The actions by TxDOT and 
Federal agencies and the laws under which such actions were taken are
