SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Roadway Safety Data Capability Assessment.
    Background: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is initiating a 
large-scale effort to expand its relationships with the States to 
develop a better understanding of their data capabilities and 
conditions of data collection. The effort, known as the Roadway Safety 
Data Capabilities Assessment, will be conducted in 50 States, the 
District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The two major objectives are to 
(1) create a mechanism by which a national and State-specific gap 
analyses could be conducted to identify opportunities to improve 
capabilities and (2) provide tools and assistance to assist States in 
overcoming those gaps. The results will provide a detailed 
understanding (for FHWA and the States themselves) of the needs for 
complete, accurate roadway, crash, and traffic volume data for use in 
safety analysis. The assessment will yield both a quantitative 
understanding of each State's capability (using a capability maturity 
model) and State-specific action plans in the key areas of:

 Roadway inventory data collection and technical standards
 Data analysis tools and uses
 Data management and governance
 Data integration and expandability
 Performance management

    The results will also be useful for States and FHWA in their 
efforts to develop programs and make improvements in roadway safety 
management.
    Respondents: 50 State DOT participants the District of Columbia and 
Puerto Rico.
    Frequency: Once every 5 years.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 36 hours per 
participant over a year.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 1,728 hours.
    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: May 11, 2017.
 Michael Howell,
Information Collection Officer.
