The US Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has announced the latest round of transportation innovations through the Every Day Counts (EDC) Program.

The department has recently committed to expanding the EDC model to more modes of transportation. This year’s innovations are being promoted by FHWA and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and will improve project delivery across highway, rail, and transit agencies at the state and local level.

The year’s seven latest innovations include improving visibility at night along corridors, intersections and pedestrian crossings to help reduce fatalities, next-generation traffic incident management and an initiative to integrate greenhouse gas assessment and reduction targets in transportation planning.

“Many of the innovations announced as part of this forward-thinking program will help make the nation’s transit systems safer, greener, and more equitable,” said Federal Transit Administrator Nuria Fernandez.

“We look forward to promoting the findings from these initiatives — from reducing greenhouse gas emissions to leveling the playing field for small businesses to compete for design-build contracts — throughout the transit industry.”
