The following information is provided for the information collection:

Title: Tramroads and Logging Roads (43 CFR part 2810).

Form: Form OR 2812-6, Report of Road Use.

OMB Number: 1004-0168.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved information collection.

Abstract: This collection of information pertains to the management of tramroads and logging roads over public lands administered by the BLM, including the Revested O. and C. Railroad Grant Lands and Reconveyed CBWR lands. On these lands in western Oregon, the BLM Oregon State Office has authority under the Act of August 28, 1937 (43 U.S.C. 1181a and 1181b) and Subchapter V of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (43 U.S.C. 1761-1771) to grant rights-of-way to private landowners to transport their timber over BLM-controlled roads. These rights-of-way are in the form of permits or reciprocal right-of-way agreements.

Each right-of-way permit or agreement requires the holder to provide the BLM with a certified statement, on Form OR 2812-6 (Report of Road Use), disclosing the amount of timber removed, the lands from which the timber was removed, and the BLM roads used to transport the timber. The BLM uses the information to determine the amount of charges for such use. Responses are mandatory.

Frequency of Collection: On occasion for all aspects of this information collection.

Annual Burden Hours: 272 responses with 8 hours per response totals 2,176 burden hours.

Annual Non-hour Burden Cost: There are no processing fees associated with this collection.

Comments: As required in 5 CFR 1320.8(d), the BLM published the 60-day notice in the Federal Register on June 16, 2010 (75 FR 34150) soliciting comments from the public and other interested parties. The comment period closed on August 16, 2010. The BLM did not receive any comments from the public in response to this notice, and did not receive any unsolicited comments.

The BLM now requests comments on the following subjects:

1. Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper functioning of the BLM, including whether the information will have practical utility;

2. The accuracy of the BLM's estimate of the burden of collecting the information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;

3. The quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and

4. How to minimize the information collection burden on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other forms of information technology.
