The FHWA evaluated 51 applications requesting more than $265 million.


The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) awarded Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment (ATCMTD) grants valued at $53.2 million to 10 projects to fund advanced technologies that will improve mobility and safety for drivers and enhance the performance of the nation’s highway system.

“These highly innovative projects offer high-tech solutions to relieve congestion and improve safety and efficiency on the nation's highways,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

FHWA’s ATCMTD program funds early deployments of cutting-edge technologies that can serve as national models to improve travel for commuters and businesses.

This year, the grants will fund projects that range from advanced real-time traveler information to Integrated Corridor Management and vehicle communications technologies, paving the way for connected and autonomous vehicles and congestion-relieving traffic management systems.

The FHWA evaluated 51 applications requesting more than $265 million.

ATCMTD was established under the FAST Act. State departments of transportation, local governments, transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations, and other eligible entities were invited to apply under the program.
