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.

In an effort to make information delivery faster, MAG has implemented an e-mail notification system that will make it easier to receive documents such as agendas, minutes and reports. Through a free subscription service called GovDelivery, MAG member agencies and the public will have better access to information that is posted on the MAG Web site.
The subscription service monitors specific Web pages for changes, and when a change is detected, the service sends an e-mail to subscribers notifying them of the change. Users can choose to subscribe to as many of the pages as they wish. There are about 130 monitored pages on the MAG Web site.
As a subscriber, you can choose not only what information you receive, you can also choose how often you receive it—immediately, daily, or weekly.
To subscribe, simply click on the link on the page that says “Sign up to receive email updates.” Users can also click on a Quick Subscribe link on various pages to see a full list and subscribe to any of the MAG pages. To subscribe, only a few pieces of information will be required, such as e-mail address, delivery preferences and organization.
Look for the red envelope icon on pages of interest.
