To accommodate the new interchange, the existing frontage roads will be realigned and auxiliary lanes will be constructed between the new interchange and US– 6 to the south. Improvements to 1600 South/2700 North include widening the existing roadway to five lanes with 10foot shoulders to provide for active transportation (a multiuse trail) and grade-separating the roadway over the planned combined Sharp/Tintic Railroad tracks to improve safety. The purpose of the project is to reduce delay at the I–15 and Springville City 400 South Interchange and on mainline I– 15, to improve safety on I–15 and 1600 South/2700 North, and to provide for active transportation in the study area. The project is included in UDOT’s adopted 2021–2026 State Transportation Improvement Plan (STIP) as project number 15153 and is scheduled for final design and right of way acquisition to begin in fiscal year 2021.

Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Safety Performance Target Setting: State-of-the-Practice Report. Background: Performance management is a critical element in roadway safety and is measured by the number of lives lost and serious injuries sustained on our Nation’s roadways. The State’s safety performance targets help to improve data, foster transparency and accountability, and allow safety progress to be tracked at the national and State level. States use the safety performance management framework to assist them in making progress toward improving road safety through the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), which requires a data-driven, strategic approach to improving highway safety on all public roads with a focus on performance. Per 23 CFR part 490 subpart B, States are required to set safety performance targets in the HSIP annual report. The performance measures are based on 5-year rolling averages and include the following (1) number of fatalities; (2) rate of fatalities; (3) number of serious injuries; (4) rate of serious injuries; and (5) number of nonmotorized fatalities and serious injuries. FHWA shares the vision that zero fatalities on our Nation’s roadways is the only acceptable goal. The State’s annual safety performance targets represent an important step in helping States work toward the ultimate goal of eliminating traffic deaths and serious injuries. The safety performance targets are interim performance levels that contribute toward the progress of the long-term goal of zero fatalities. FHWA does not prescribe a methodology for States to set their annual safety performance targets. States have the flexibility to use the methodology they deem most appropriate. FHWA encourages States to review data sets and trends and consider factors that may affect targets. The safety performance targets should be data-driven, realistic, and attainable and should align with the performance management framework and legislative intent. Since 2016 when 23 CFR part 490 went into effect, States have had the opportunity to go through several E:\FR\FM\18OCN1.SGM 18OCN1
