On July 6, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced the availability of $60 million in grant funding for state and local projects aiming to improve travel for commuters, reduce congestion, and serve as national models for other states and metropolitan areas.
Authorized in 2015, the funds will promote the early distribution of technologies aiming to improve transportation systems.
State departments of transportation, local government groups, transit agencies and metropolitan planning organizations are eligible to apply, and partnerships with private-sector groups are encouraged.
The deadline for applications is Aug. 31.
