[[Page 20062]]

under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. We published a Federal Register Notice 
with a 60-day public comment period on this information collection on 
August 28, 2014. We are required to publish this notice in the Federal 
Register by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

DATES: Please submit comments by May 14, 2015.

ADDRESSES: You may send comments within 30 days to the Office of

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

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rosemary Jones, 202-366-2042, Office 
of Real Estate Services, Federal Highway Administration, Department of 
Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., Washington, DC, between 9 
a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

    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). Due to the amending 
of 23 CFR 710 regulations, a lengthy and in-depth update of each manual 
will be required. The revisions are prompted by enactment of the Moving 
Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). 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: A one-time collection due to regulatory revisions. Then 
States update their manuals on an annually basis and certify every 5 
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 225 hours per respondent.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 225 hours for each of the 52 
State Departments of Transportation.
    The total is 11,700 burden hours.

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

     Dated: April 8, 2015.
Michael Howell,
Information Collection Officer.
