Federal Highway Administration Supports Innovative State Transportation Projects. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced the new Office of Innovative Program Delivery, which will provide states with stronger and more effective federal support to deliver transportation projects. The office will work with state departments of transportation to help them explore opportunities with innovative financing and congestion pricing and tap into the $400 billion in private funds available world wide for investment in transportation infrastructure. Existing FHWA activities such as public private partnerships, innovative financing, experimental projects, and tolling authorities will be merged into the new office, which will improve access and communication for the states. The Office of Innovative Program Delivery will provide national leadership and advice for states pursuing innovative and non-traditional transportation projects. Contact: Nancy Singer 202-366-0660.
