Federal Highway Administration Research Awards

The Federal Highway Administration will award up to $450,000 in research pilots to test the delivery of goods during off-peak hours in urban areas with emerging or growing congestion problems. Working with the Environmental Protection Agency, the pilots will look at how truck deliveries made outside of peak and rush hours – when there is less traffic on the highways – can save time and money for freight carriers, improve air quality sustainability and the quality of life in cities. FHWA encourages transportation agencies to partner with businesses involved in freight movement in developing proposals.

The solicitation is posted at http://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=255174.
