Highway Information Seminar

October 22-25, 2012

The annual Highway Information Seminar will be held October 22-25, 2012 at the National Highway Institute (NHI) located in Arlington, VA. There is no registration fee for this seminar.

This seminar aims to address the continued demand for high-quality State-reported data which is used by FHWA to: (1) determine the proper apportionment of Federal funds to the States, (2) investigate Federal highway program policy options, and (3) conduct performance monitoring.  Moreover, this seminar will provide comprehensive training on the latest requirements, guidance, and information pertaining to the reporting of data to the FHWA with respect to the following program areas:

  • Highway Funding
  • Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS)
  • Highway Tax Evasion
  • Motor Fuel
  • Travel Monitoring and Surveys

The seminar will also feature a series of interactive hands-on software training sessions that will be held throughout the course of the week.  Additionally, a series of pre-seminar "additional learning opportunities" will be offered on October 22nd focusing on the following program areas:

  • Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS)
  • Travel Monitoring and Surveys

The seminar will offer a variety of workshops, which focus on current topical issues related to FHWA programs and the uses of Highway Statistics information.  The workshops will also provide participants with an opportunity to interact with their peers from other States, discuss common problems, seek and share solutions to reporting problems, and clarify reporting and other data issues with FHWA staff.

This seminar is intended primarily for State Departments of Transportation and FHWA Division Office staff involved in the collection, review, summarization, and reporting of highway statistical data.  However, attendance from other State agencies (such as motor vehicle and tax collection agencies), metropolitan planning organizations, and other governmental units that collect and provide data is encouraged.

Personnel actively involved in the development and use of Highway Statistics data at both the supervisory and non-supervisory levels should be considered for seminar attendance purposes.  Individuals who have Highway Statistics data reporting responsibilities and have not attended a previous seminar are partcularly encouraged to attend.

For lodging purposes, FHWA has arranged room blocks (at the Federal government per diem rate) at the following hotels which can be reserved by clicking on the links below:
