The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) was established in 1967 as one of the operating administrations of the Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT). The agency has been in existence since 1893, and prior to 1967 was known by other names such as the Office of Road Inquiry and the Bureau of Public Roads. Through the years our name has changed, but our dedication to transportation in America has remained the same. FHWA's Vision is "Our Agency and Our Transportation System are the Best in the World." Our Mission is to improve mobility on our Nation's Highways through National Leadership, Innovation, and Program Delivery; and our FHWA Values are: Public Service, Integrity, Respect, Personal Development, Collaboration, and Family.
The FHWA is made up of Washington Headquarters, Resource Center, 52 Division Offices, 4 Metropolitan Offices and 3 Federal Lands Highway Offices.
