FHWA Addresses the Nation’s Key Highway Challenges
Safety is the U.S. Department of Transportation's top priority and is underscored throughout FHWA's research areas.
Improving the Mobility of People and Goods
A growing economy needs highways that safely and reliably move people and goods where they need to go.
Maintaining Infrastructure Integrity
Keeping pavements and structures in good condition requires innovations that improve the monitoring and repair of our roadways.
Enhancing System Performance
Effective tools and research help decrease highway congestion, safety risks, and wear-and-tear in the face of growing demand.
Promoting Environmental Sustainability
Environmentally friendly transportation networks benefit more than our highway system and FHWA is leading the way.
