The White House is looking to cities for a transportation "moonshot" that will help stave off the effects of meager federal funding, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said Wednesday in Portland.

Foxx, the former mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, was in town during a tour of cities competing for a $40 million "Smart Cities Challenge" grant, for which Portland is a finalist. The grant will fund one city's efforts to integrate technology in its transportation network.

DeLAND, Fla. - The Florida Department of Transportation Tuesday rolled out their roundabout education campaign in front of local Volusia County government officials at their River to Sea Transportation Organization meeting.

The proposed roundabout at SR 44 and Grand Avenue would be the first of its kind in Volusia County. Plans that became a priority after a grandmother and her three granddaughter died in a crash at the intersection.

Governor Tom Wolf announced Monday that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will distribute nearly $5.5 million in Automated Red Light Enforcement funding to 18 municipalities statewide to fund 23 safety projects, including several in Montgomery and Chester County.

“While having all drivers traveling safely is our ultimate goal, I’m pleased that traffic fines are being reinvested into making our communities safer,” Governor Wolf said in a statement. “This program brings safer travel to every corner of the state.”

It’s the problem that no one has been able to solve.  For years, there has been widespread agreement in Washington that the nation is facing an infrastructure crisis, with dangerously congested roads and deficient bridges threatening public safety and trade. 

Time and time again, lawmakers in both parties have expressed agreement that something should be done.
Yet congressional attempts to revitalize the country’s transportation infrastructure — which now ranks 11th in the world after slipping from no. 1, according to the World Economic Forum — have gone nowhere. 



The Department is pleased with the overall performance of the SAI Consulting Engineers team.  The SAI team was cooperative and very responsive to the Department's requests and reviews were turned around in a timely manner.
