Quality Assurance Statement

The Federal Highway Administration provides high-quality information to serve Government, industry, and the public in a manner that promotes public understanding. Standards and policies are used to ensure and maximize the quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity of its information. FHWA periodically reviews quality issues and adjusts its programs and processes to ensure continuous quality improvement.

Data Quality

Requests for Correction

On October 1, 2002, the Department of Transportation (DOT) issued agency guidelines to ensure the quality of disseminated information. If you are affected by information that the Department has disseminated on or after October 1, 2002 (i.e., if you are harmed because the information does not meet the standards of the guidelines or a correction of the information would benefit you), you may request that the Department correct that information. We regard information originally disseminated before October 1, 2002, as being subject to this correction process only if it remains readily available to the public (e.g., it is posted on a DOT website) and it continues to play a significant, active role in Department programs or in private sector decisions. Information on how to submit a request can be found at http://dms.dot.gov/dataquality.cfm
