SHRP2 Expediting Project Delivery Grant

Federal Highway Administration Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2): Expediting Project Delivery Grant

The Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) Expediting Project Delivery Grant (C19) is awarded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG). The grant enables MAG to work with other agencies in the Intermountain West region. Together, they conduct outreach and develop strategies for sharing information with the goal of expediting key global transportation projects in the Intermountain West.

The Intermountain West Region is critical to the long-term economic vitality of this nation. The purpose of the grant is to enable agencies in the region to conduct outreach to transportation management areas and state departments of transportation to identify needs and potential gaps in transportation and data resources. It also seeks to develop a common operating vision and platform for easier data information sharing. Another goal is to develop a risk register; a method of documenting various levels of risks that can prevent successfully achieving the goals and objectives of an activity. Risks may include cost increases, unexpected archeological findings, and insufficient funding.

Now is the time to address the transportation network and other infrastructure in the region to enhance global competitiveness. Once they are developed, nationally significant corridors within the region will strategically link the movement of people and freight.
