DOT Fastlane Grants
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Nationally Significant Freight and Highway Projects Program, also known as the FASTLANE program, is a new competitive grant program that was included in the “Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act” (FAST Act) to provide funding for nationally significant highway, bridge, and freight projects. Congress authorized $800 million in funding for the FASTLANE program for the 2017 fiscal year.
One of the FASTLANE program priority goals is to: "Enhance the resiliency of critical highway infrastructure and help protect the environment."
