The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is a major agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The top-level official of the FHWA is the Administrator, who reports directly to the Secretary of Transportation. FHWA is headquartered in Washington DC, with field offices in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
FHWA is charged with the broad responsibility of ensuring that America's roads and highways continue to be the safest and most technologically up to date. Although state, local and tribal governments own most of the nation's highways, we provide financial and technical support to them for constructing, improving and preserving America's highway system. Our budget, which is funded by fuel and motor vehicle excise taxes, is divided primarily between two programs: (1) federal-aid funding to state and local governments, and (2) Federal Lands Highways funding for national parks, national forests, Indian lands, and other land under federal stewardship.
The DelMar Division of the FHWA does not build or repair roads in the state. Rather, it provides funding for qualifying state and local highway and other related transportation projects. In addition, the Division offers technical assistance and oversight to ensure federal requirements are met, such as the provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969.
The DelMar Division will be the choice Division in FHWA in organization excellence and providing a superior highway system to its citizens.
