    Title: Travel Monitoring Analysis System (TMAS).
    OMB Control Number: 2125-0587.
    Background: Title 49, United States Code, Section 301, authorizes 
the DOT to collect statistical information relevant to domestic 
transportation. The FHWA is continuing to develop the TMAS to house 
data that will enable analysis of the amount and nature of both 
vehicular and nonmotorized travel at the national and regional levels. 
The information will be used by the FHWA and other DOT agencies to 
evaluate changes in vehicular and nonmotorized travel to assess impacts 
on highway safety, national travel trend, national travel demand, the 
role of travel in economic productivity, impacts of changes in truck 
travel on infrastructure condition, and maintenance of our Nation's 
mobility while protecting the human and natural environment. The 
increasing dependence on truck transport requires that data be 
available to better assess its overall contribution to the Nation's 
well-being. In conducting the data collection, the FHWA will be 
requesting that State Departments of Transportations (SDOTs) report 
traffic volume, vehicle classification, vehicle weight data and 
nonmotorized data which they collect as part of their existing traffic 
monitoring programs, including other sources such as local governments 
and traffic operations. States and local governments collect 
nonmotorized and motorized traffic volume, vehicle classification data, 
and vehicle weight data throughout the year using detection devices. 
The data should be representative of all public roads within State 
boundaries. The data will allow transportation professionals at the 
Federal, State, and metropolitan levels to make informed decisions 
about policies and plans.
    Respondents: 52 SDOTs, including the District of Columbia and 
Puerto Rico.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Each of the SDOTs already 
collect traffic data for various purposes. In accordance with 23 U.S.C. 
303, each State has a Traffic Monitoring System in place so the data 
collection burden relevant for this notice is the additional burden for 
each State to provide a copy of their traffic data using the record 
formats specified in the Traffic Monitoring Guide. Automation and 
online tools continue to be developed in support of the TMAS and the 
capability now exists for online submission and validation of total 
volume data. The estimated average monthly burden is 2.5 hours for an 
annual burden of 30 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Total burden will be 1,560 
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the U.S. DOT's performance, 
including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the 
accuracy of the U.S. DOT's estimate of the burden of the proposed 
information collection; (3) ways 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: April 11, 2018.
Michael Howell,
Information Collection Officer.
