Highways for LIFE Extends 2009 Project Application Deadline

The Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Highways for LIFE (HfL) program has extended the deadline for grant applications for its final round of demonstration projects to December 30, 2008. The HfL program is designed to encourage State transportation agencies to build projects using proven innovations that have been infrequently or never used by the agency. The proposed innovations must be available now and ready to use.

Depending on the availability of fiscal year 2009 funding for the HfL program, selected projects may receive either a program grant or a waiver to allow 100 percent Federal-aid funding for the project. States that have not been previously selected as a HfL recipient will receive first consideration for funding.

Applications must be submitted to FHWA's division offices. The application form is available on the HfL Web site at For more information, contact your local FHWA division office or Mary Huie at FHWA, 202-366-3039 (email:
