The Federal Highway Administration has awarded 10 states the first grants from the federal government’s Advanced Digital Construction Management Systems program, worth a combined $34 million, announced last month.

The funding program, established under 2021’s $1.2 trillion bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, is one aspect of FHWA’s Technology and Innovation Deployment Program, and exists under that broader umbrella as a source of cash for state departments of transportation. Grants will go through those DOTs to private construction firms that work on awarded jobs.

Most of the grants this year focus on information-sharing, reduced reliance on paper and increased productivity and cost savings during project delivery, per the release. FHWA hopes these builds will serve as models for the adoption and deployment of digital construction technologies on a national scale.
