Title: Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS).
OMB Control Number: 2125-0028 (Expiration Date: April 30, 2006).
Background: The HPMS data that is collected is used for management decisions that affect transportation, including estimates of the Nation's future highway needs and assessments of highway system performance. The information is used by the FHWA to develop and implement legislation and by State and Federal transportation officials to adequately plan, design, and administer effective, safe, and efficient transportation systems. This data is essential to the FHWA and Congress in evaluating the effectiveness of the Federal-aid highway program. The HPMS also provides miles, lane-miles and travel components of the Federal-Aid Highway Fund apportionment formulae. The data that is required by the HPMS is continually reassessed and streamlined by the FHWA.
Respondents: State and local governments of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
Estimated Average Burden Per Response: The estimated average reporting burden per response for the annual collection of the data is 1,440 hours for the States, District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: The estimated total annual burden for all Respondents is 74,880 hours.
