SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: State Right-of-Way Operations Manuals.
    Background: It is the responsibility of each State Department of 
Transportation (State) to acquire, manage and dispose of real property 
in compliance with the legal requirements of State and Federal laws and 
regulations. Part of providing assurance of compliance is to describe 
in a right-of-way procedural (operations) manual the organization, 
policies and procedures of the State to such an extent that these guide 
State employees, local acquiring agencies, and contractors who acquire 
and manage real property that is used for a federally funded 
transportation project. Procedural manuals assure the FHWA that the 
requirements of the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property 
Acquisition Policies Act (Uniform Act) will be met. The State 
responsibility to prepare and maintain an up-to-date right-of-way 
procedural manual is set out in 23 CFR 710.201(c). The regulation 
allows States flexibility in determining how to meet the manual 
requirement. This flexibility allows States to prepare manuals in the 
format of their choosing, to the level of detail necessitated by State 
complexities. Each State decides how it will provide service to 
individuals and businesses affected by Federal or federally-assisted 
projects, while at the same time reducing the burden of government 
regulation. States are required to update manuals to reflect changes in 
Federal requirements for programs administered under Title 23 U.S.C. 
The State manuals may be submitted to FHWA electronically or made 
available by posting on the State Web site.
    Respondents: 52 State Departments of Transportation, including the 
District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 75 hours per respondent.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 75 hours for each of the 52 
State Departments of Transportation. The total is 3,900 burden hours 
annually.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection is necessary for the FHWA's performance; (2) the accuracy of 
the estimated burdens; (3) ways for the FHWA 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.

    Authority:  The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1.48.

    Issued On: November 19, 2012.
Victoria Scott,
Business Operations Group Manager, Information Technology Division.
