NOACA receives FHWA grant for Transportation Asset Management Program
In December, U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced that NOACA, in partnership with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), will receive a $600,000 Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) Demonstration grant to help develop the Transportation Asset Management Program (TAMP). Federal AID Demonstration grants are designed to accelerate the deployment of innovative projects. NOACA's TAMP focuses on improving the region's roadway infrastructure toward a state of good repair and executing a performance-driven, outcome-based approach for allocating transportation funding.
"This is great news for northeast Ohio," says NOACA Executive Director Grace Gallucci. "Through this grant we will be able to address the region's critical transportation infrastructure needs and expedite implementation of the TAMP. This is another significant step toward NOACA's goal of restoring our aging and disintegrating roads to an acceptable operating condition."
