The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has embraced a culture of innovation and actively supports and advances innovation across the breadth of FHWA activities. FHWA has woven innovation into its business practices. Innovative technologies are developed at its world class Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center. The Center for Accelerating Innovation works across FHWA and with our partners to identify and focus innovations for implementation. FHWA’s Office of Technical Services and its Division Offices provide technical assistance to our State and local partners to deploy the innovations. The Federal Lands Highway program works with our Federal partners (e.g., National Park Service) to deploy innovations on transportation assets on Federal lands.
Across the Agency, FHWA has the organizational capacity to advance innovation through two primary methods: the identification and development of innovative technologies and practices, and the implementation of innovation at the Federal, State, and local levels.
