We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register by the

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Study of High-Risk Rural Roads Best 
Practices.
    Background: Section 1112 of the ``Moving Ahead for Progress in the 
21st Century Act'' of 2012 (MAP-21) calls for a study of the best 
practices for implementing cost-effective roadway safety infrastructure 
improvements on high-risk rural roads. In carrying out the study, FHWA 
is required to conduct a nationwide survey of the current practices of 
various agencies. The results of the survey are to be used in 
conjunction with a research study to create a report to submit to the 
Committee on Environment and Public Works of the Senate and the 
Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the House of 
Representatives by October 1, 2013. The report is required to include: 
(1) A summary of cost-effective roadway safety infrastructure 
improvements; (2) a summary of the latest research on the financial 
savings and reductions in fatalities and serious bodily injury crashes 
from the implementation of cost-effective roadway safety infrastructure 
improvements; and (3) and recommendations for State and local 
governments on best practice methods to install cost-effective roadway 
safety infrastructure on high-risk rural roads. The legislation also 
requires the results of the survey and the report to be used to create 
a best-practices manual to support Federal, State, and local efforts to 
reduce fatalities and serious injuries on high-risk rural roads.
    Respondents: The respondents will include all 50 State Departments 
of Transportation. In addition, a representative sampling of 100 local 
agencies, such as county highway departments and municipal public works 
agencies will be surveyed.
    Frequency: Once.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 8 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: The total burden for this 
collection is approximately 1,200 hours.

Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1.48.

    Issued On: October 26, 2012.
