Title: Freight Planning Noteworthy Practices.
Background: The FHWA plans to update its Freight Planning Web site by adding a new feature that will collect information and photographs about freight planning activities from the FHWA public sector partners. This information will be reviewed by the FHWA on a monthly basis to determine which project will be posted on the Web site as an informational and educational tool for the FHWA's public sector audiences, which are engaged in freight planning activities and/or are just beginning to develop freight planning activities. Freight planning agencies will provide a description of case studies on Freight Planning and Implementation, which can include plans or project, or both.
Respondents: 60 State Transportation Departments, including Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and local governments.
Frequency: On-going basis.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 60 hours. It is estimated that each freight-planning agency spends one hour to prepare and provide this information to the FHWA.Start Further Info
