INFORMATION. We published a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day

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 burden; (3) ways 
for the FHWA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the

    Title: Highway Safety Improvement Program.
    Background: The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act 
(MAP-21) continues the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) as a 
core federal-aid program with the purpose to achieve a significant 
reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public 
roads, including non-State-owned public roads and roads on tribal 
lands. The HSIP requires a data-driven, strategic approach to improving 
highway safety on all public roads that focuses on performance.
    The existing provisions of Title 23 U.S.C. 130, Railway-Highway 
Crossings Program, as well as implementing regulations in 23 CFR part 
924, remain in effect. Included in these combined provisions are 
requirements for State DOTs to annually produce and submit to FHWA by 
August 31 reports related to the implementation and effectiveness of 
their HSIPs, that are to include information on: (a) Progress being 
made to implement HSIP projects and the effectiveness of these projects 
in reducing traffic fatalities and serious injuries [Sections 148(h)]; 
and (b) progress being made to implement the Railway-Highway Crossings 
Program and the effectiveness of the projects in that program [Sections 
130(g) and 148(h)], which will be used by FHWA to produce and submit 
biennial reports to Congress. To be able to produce these reports, 
State DOTs must have safety data and analysis systems capable of 
identifying and determining the relative severity of hazardous highway 
locations on all public roads, based on both crash experience and crash 
potential, as well as determining the effectiveness of highway safety 
improvement projects. FHWA provides an online reporting tool to support 
the annual HSIP reporting process. Additional information is available 
on the Office of Safety Web site at http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/hsip/resources/onrpttool/. Reporting into the online reporting tool meets 
all report requirements and USDOT Web site compatibility requirements. 
The information contained in the annual HSIP reports provides FHWA with 
a means for monitoring the effectiveness of these programs and may be 
used by Congress for determining the future HSIP program structure and 
funding levels.
    Respondents: 51 State Transportation Departments, including the 
District of Columbia.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 250 hours Estimated Total 
Annual Burden Hours: 12,750 hours (51 states at an average of 250 hours
