FHWA Addresses the Nation’s Key Highway Challenges
FHWA defines objectives and strategies that guide research, development, and deployment activities across eight groups of offices and programs. Each group targets one or more of the Nation's six key highway challenges.
Safety is the U.S. Department of Transportation's top priority and is guided by the vision of advancing toward zero deaths and serious injuries.
|Enhancing System Performance|
To meet growing demand, transportation agencies need effective tools and research to help decrease highway congestion, safety risks, and wear-and-tear on roadways.
|Improving Mobility of People and Goods|
A growing economy needs highways that safely and reliably move people and goods where they need to go.
|Maintaining Infrastructure Integrity|
Keeping pavements, bridges, and other structures in good condition requires innovations that increase longevity while enabling improved monitoring of road conditions.
|Preparing for the Future|
Federal Highway Administration's vision for the Nation's roadways extends beyond today's challenges, anticipating the emerging issues of tomorrow.
|Promoting Environmental Sustainability|
Environmentally friendly transportation networks benefit more than our highway system and Federal Highway Administration is leading the way.
