FHWA Field Organization
The field organization delivers program services to the FHWA's partners and customers. This organization consists of the FHWA Resource Center, State-level Federal-aid and the Office of Federal Lands Highway.
FHWA Resource Center
Organized by functional and technical teams, the FHWA Resource Center operates as a national unit with teams and expert specialists staffed in localities throughout the United States. The Resource Center provides technical support and program assistance along with training, and technology delivery to FHWA's Division Offices, State Departments of Transportation, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and other transportation partners.
Federal-aid Division Offices
These division offices provide front line Federal-aid program delivery assistance to partners and customers in highway transportation and safety services, including but not limited to, planning and research, preliminary engineering, technology transfer, right-of-way, bridge, highway safety, traffic operations, environment, civil rights, design construction and maintenance, engineering coordination, highway beautification, and administration.
Each of the fifty-two operating division offices (one in each State, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico) is located in the same city as the State department of transportation, which is usually the State capital.
In addition, jointly with the Federal Transit Administration, the FHWA operates four metropolitan offices in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; New York, New York; Chicago, Illinois; and Los Angeles, California, that are extensions of their respective division offices. These offices provide assistance, guidance, and information regarding Federal transportation programs to local, State, and other Federal agencies in these metropolitan areas.
