to handle new and ongoing challenges. As a result of the collected 
information, FHWA will focus its efforts and resources on providing 
targeted and meaningful support for planning and readiness nationwide. 
Additionally, FHWA will ensure that excellent planning practices are 
identified will be shared broadly across the country.

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 collected information; and (4) ways that 
the burden could be minimized, including the use of computer 
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.
