FOIA - Freedom of Information Act
New FOIA Guidance
Motor carrier-related records are available from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). For information on obtaining motor carrier-related records, visit the FMCSA's FOIA web page (http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/foia).
To find FHWA records and information that are publicly available without submitting a FOIA request, please visit the electronic reading room.
Remember...FOIA provides only for the release of records-it is not the appropriate vehicle to ask general questions of the agency. When you submit a FOIA request for FHWA documents (FOIA), you must:
make your request in writing and include your name, address, and a telephone number where we can reach you if we have questions about your request.
clearly indicate that you are making your request under FOIA.
reasonably, and specifically as possible, describe the documents you seek.
Before submitting your FOIA request, please refer to our easy-to-use FOIA request guide. It contains addresses of FHWA's field locations and other information about submitting a FOIA request.
You may submit your request via mail, fax, or e-mail:
Field: To request information located in FHWA's field offices, see FOIA Request Guide (above) for addresses
