The Federal Highway Administration published a Notice of Funding Opportunity on June 12 for states, cities, and others to compete for $60 million in new Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment or ATCMTD grants that aim to support the development of new technologies for improving transportation efficiency.

Now in its fourth round of grants, the ATCMTD program – created by the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation or FAST Act – seeks to fund projects that bring data together from different systems, such as integrated corridor management, real-time traveler information, traffic data collection and dissemination, and other multi-modal intelligent transportation system technologies.

“Technology can make it possible to provide more reliable transportation options to benefit Americans in all areas of the country,” noted FHWA Administrator Nicole Nason in a statement.

The agency said state departments of transportation, local governments, transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations and other eligible entities are invited to apply under the program.

Over the last three years, the ATCMTD program has provided $163 million to 28 projects in 19 states, including the Oregon Department of Transportation’s Smart Mobility Network, the Florida Department of Transportation’s Sunstore integrated data system for travelers, and the Texas Department of Transportation’s I-10 Corridor Coalition Truck Parking Availability System.
