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 Start Printed Page 17754freight planning activities from the FHWA's 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 that are engaged in freight planning activities and/or are beginning to develop their freight planning activities. State Departments of Transportation, metropolitan planning organizations, and local government agencies will provide a description of case studies on freight planning and implementation, which can include plans or projects, or both.

Respondents: State Departments of Transportation, metropolitan planning organizations, and local government agencies.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: It is estimated that each State Department of Transportation, metropolitan planning organization, and local government agency will spend about one hour to prepare and to provide their freight plans or projects to the FHWA. The estimated total annual burden is 60 hours.

Frequency: On-going basis.
