AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.


SUMMARY: The FHWA has forwarded the information collection request

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

including the use of electronic technology, without reducing the 
quality of the collected information. All comments should include the 
Docket number FHWA-2017-0011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. David Bartz, (512) 536-5906, 
Office of Program Administration, Federal Highway Administration,

    Title: Preparation and Execution of the Project Agreement and 
    OMB Control Number: 2125-0529.
    Background: Formal agreements between State Transportation 
Departments and the FHWA are required for Federal-aid highway projects. 
These agreements, referred to as ``project agreements'' are written 
contracts between the State and the Federal government that define the 
extent of work to be undertaken and commitments made concerning a 
highway project. Section 1305 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 
21st Century (TEA-21, Pub. L. 105-178) amended 23 U.S.C. 106(a) and 
combined authorization of work and execution of the project agreement 
for a Federal-aid project into a single action. States continue to have 
the flexibility to use whatever format is suitable to provide the 
statutory information required, and burden estimates for this 
information collection are not changed.
    Respondents: There are 56 respondents, including 50 State 
Transportation Departments, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth 
of Puerto Rico, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the 
Territories of Guam, the Virgin Islands and American Samoa.
    Frequency: On an on-going basis as project agreements are written.
    Estimated Average Annual Burden per Response: There is an average 
of 400 annual agreements per respondent. Each agreement requires 1 hour 
to complete.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 22,400 hours.
    Electronic Access: For access to the docket to read background 
documents or comments received, go to http://www.regulations.gov. 
Follow the online instructions for accessing the dockets.

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