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 Mission: Enable and empower the strengthening of a world-class highway system that promotes safety, mobility, and economic growth, while enhancing the quality of life of all Americans.
We undertake this mission in cooperation with all our partners to enhance the country's economic vitality, quality of life, and the environment.
The organizational structure of the Agency consists of the Washington Headquarters, one Resource Center in four locations, 52 Division Offices, 4 Metropolitan Offices and three Federal Lands Highway Offices. For more specific information on the history and organizational structure of the FHWA, visit the FHWA Washington Headquarters Homepage.
The Wyoming Division Office represents FHWA in Wyoming and works in close partnership with the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT). The Division office is organized into two sections. The office is led by the Division Administrator who serves as the principal representative of the FHWA for the State of Wyoming and is responsible for administering the Federal-aid Highway Program in the State. The Program Delivery group is made up of two teams that are responsible for the day to day functions of the office. These teams are Technical Services and Engineering and Operations.
