This presentation will provide a broad overview of Federal Highway Administration goals, programs, resources, and funding.
|The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) provides stewardship over the construction, maintenance, and preservation of the Nation’s highways, bridges, and tunnels, including trails. FHWA also conducts research and provides technical assistance to State and local agencies to improve safety, mobility, and livability, and to encourage innovation. Trails can help integrate the transportation and recreation network.
FHWA has published several reports to help States and communities achieve safe, accessible, comfortable, and connected multimodal networks. Several publications highlight ways that planners and designers can apply the design flexibility found in national design guidelines to address common design challenges and barriers and reduce multimodal conflicts. Other publications help guide the project development process. FHWA’s goal is to help communities provide safe, comfortable, and attractive options for people of all ages and abilities.
