WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) today awarded Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment (ATCMTD) grants valued at $43.3 million to ten states for projects using cutting-edge technologies that will improve mobility and safety for America’s travelers.

“This $43.3 million in federal funding will advance innovative technologies that will improve mobility and safety in America’s transportation network,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

FHWA’s ATCMTD program funds early deployments of forward-looking technologies that can serve as national models.

This year, the grants will fund projects that use advanced real-time traveler information, vehicle communications technologies, artificial intelligence, regional approaches and bicycle-pedestrian safety features.

“The program selections this year aim to benefit communities across the country by improving safety and efficiency on our roads through the deployment of advanced technologies,” said Federal Highway Administrator Nicole R. Nason.

The FHWA evaluated 33 applications requesting more than $139 million.

ATCMTD was established under the “Fixing America's Surface Transportation” (FAST) Act. State departments of transportation, local governments, transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations and other eligible entities were invited to apply under the program. Now in its fourth year, the program has funded more than 35 projects worth $207 million.
