FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Chris Jaeschke, 703-404-6306,

    Title: ``Right-of-Way Cost Estimation Processes; State of the 
Practice''. Government agencies that acquire real property for a 
Federal-aid highway program typically consider the cost of many 
alternatives for a potential project. As a part of this consideration, 
estimates of the cost of right-of-way needed for potential highway 
alignments must be determined and documented. Agencies may use several 
different methods to determine the estimate and document these costs. 
The methods range from a process using only paper and pencil, all the 
way to a process utilizing Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping 
and electronic data capture methods. The electronic methods presumably 
include an electronic calculation method which tabulates and calculates 
total costs, area to be acquired, and the numbers of relocations of 
residential and business property owners and tenants. Utilizing the 
paper-based method necessarily requires manual collection, organization 
and calculation which are likely expensive and inefficient, both in 
terms of dedicated staff time and dollars spent.
    Respondents: Each State DOT will be asked to respond, as well as a 
limited number (5-10) of local government agencies that have large and 
complex transportation programs. Each invited agency will be asked to 
respond to a one-time survey containing questions about the agency's 
ROW cost estimation process and management.
    Frequency: There will be one survey only.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 8-16 person-
hours to fully and accurately respond to the survey, depending on the 
size and complexity of an individual agency's transportation program.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 900 hours. (This 
is the estimated total burden, for approximately 60 State and local 
government transportation agencies to respond to a single survey).
    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: January 17, 2018.
Michael Howell,
FHWA Information Collection Officer.
