SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Federal Highway Administration Research, Development and 
Technology Agenda Web site.
    Background: Title 23, United States Code, Section 502(a)(5) 
requires that Federal surface transportation research and development 
activities address the needs of stakeholders, including ``States, 
metropolitan planning organizations, local governments, the private 
sector, researchers, research sponsors, and other affected parties, 
including public interest groups.'' As part of its effort to ensure 
that Federal research, development and technology (RD&T) activities are 
addressing the most critical national challenges, the Federal Highway 
Administration (FHWA) is developing the RD&T Agenda Web site. This Web 
site will communicate FHWA's RD&T goals, objectives and strategies to 
its stakeholders and highlight notable initiatives or projects that 
illustrate FHWA's RD&T approach. The Web site will include an 
electronic mechanism for stakeholders to provide feedback on the 
overall RD&T Agenda, FHWA's approach to addressing national 
transportation challenges, and potential opportunities for FHWA to 
collaborate with stakeholders to address them.
    Respondents: Approximately 1,000 annual respondents.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 10 minutes per 
respondent per year.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 167 hours per 
year.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection is necessary for the FHWA's performance; (2) the accuracy of 
the estimated burden; (3) ways for the FHWA to enhance the quality, 
usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that 
the burden could be minimized, including the use of computer 
technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information. 
The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request 
for OMB's clearance of this information collection.

    Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C.
