Members of APWA’s Government Affairs Committee, Transportation Committee and MAP-21 Reauthorization Task Force met in Washington, DC in early April toreceive the latest updates on the status of MAP-21 implementation and on the outlook for reauthorization and to advocate APWA’s priorities.
Officials from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) briefed attendees on various programs, including: FHWA’s Every Day Counts (EDC) initiative, which is designed to identify and deploy innovation to reduce the time it takes to deliver transportation projects; MAP-21’s planning and project delivery provisions; local project administration; and SHRP2 opportunities.
Participants also learned about several innovative stormwater and transportation initiatives in the District of Columbia, and Congressional staff provided an update on the status of reauthorization in Congress and several proposals for funding a future bill.
Attendees also met with their Congressional representatives to advocate APWA’s reauthorization and other legislative priorities.
