    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Title: Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program.

    OMB Control Number: 2125-0614.

    Background: Section 1113 of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) calls for an Evaluation and Assessment of CMAQ Projects. The statute calls for the identification and analysis of a representative sample of CMAQ projects and the development and population of a database that describes the impacts of the program both on traffic congestion levels and air quality. To establish and maintain this database, the FHWA is requesting States to submit annual reports on their CMAQ investments that cover projected air quality benefits, financial information, a brief description of projects, and several other factors outlined in the Interim Program Guidance for the CMAQ program. States are requested to provide the end of year summary reports via the automated system provided through FHWA by the first day of March of each year, covering the prior Federal fiscal year.

    Respondents: 51 (each State DOT, and Washington DC).

    Frequency: Annually.

    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 125 hours per annual report.

    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 6,375 hours.

    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the U.S. DOT's performance, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the U.S. DOT's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.
