Title: Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Improvement Program.
OMB Control Number: 2125-0614.
Background: Section 1808 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users of 2005 (SAFETEA-LU) calls for an Evaluation and Assessment of CMAQ Projects. The statute calls for the identification and analysis of a representative sample of CMAQ projects and the development and population of a database that describes the impacts of the program both on traffic congestion levels and air quality. To establish and maintain this database, the FHWA is requesting States to submit annual reports on their CMAQ investments that cover projected air quality benefits, financial information, a brief description of projects, and several other factors outlined in the Interim Program Guidance for the CMAQ program. States are requested to provide the end of year summary reports via the automated system provided through FHWA by the first day of March of each year, covering the prior Federal fiscal year.
Respondents: 51 (each State DOT, and Washington DC).
Estimated Average Burden per Response: 125 hours per annual report.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 6,375 hours.Start Signature
