SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Highways for LIFE Pilot Program.
    Background: Section 1502 of SAFETEA-LU establishes the ``Highways 
for LIFE'' Pilot Program. The purpose of the Highways for LIFE pilot 
program is to advance longer-lasting highways using innovative 
technologies and practices to accomplish the fast construction of 
efficient and safe highways and bridges. ``Highways for LIFE'' is 
focused on accelerating the rate of adoption of proven technologies. 
The program will provide funding to States to accelerate technology 
adoption to construct, reconstruct, or rehabilitate Federal-aid highway 
projects that incorporate innovative technologies that will improve 
safety, reduce congestion due to construction, and improve quality. 
Those States interested in participating in the ``Highways for LIFE'' 
program will submit an application for project funding. The information 
to be provided on the application includes a description of the 
project, the innovative technologies to be used and a description of 
how these technologies will improve safety, reduce construction 
congestion, and improve quality. The collected information will be used 
by FHWA to evaluate and select projects for ``Highways for LIFE'' 
funding.
    Respondents: The fifty State Departments of Transportation, the 
District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,460 for file maintenance and 52 
state highway agencies for statistical reports.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 8 hours per respondent per 
application.
    Total Annual Burden: It is expected that the respondents will 
complete approximately 30 applications for an estimated 240 total 
annual burden 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,

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

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.
