FHWA Awards $1.59 Million in Grants for Roadway Technologies

The Federal Highway Administration has awarded $1.59 million in grants to five companies developing innovative technologies to improve highway quality and safety. The grants will help move technologies from the prototype to the testing phase and were awarded as part of the Highways for LIFE program.

The grants will finance development of 3M Company's wet reflective pavement markings that are more easily seen under rainy conditions and Pine Instrument Company's imaging technology that tells if changes are needed to make pavement mix more durable before surfacing. Grants also will fund Haskell Lemon Construction's sensors, which are designed to determine in real time when asphalt is set, saving the time it takes to compact the material; Stay Alert Safety Services Inc.'s devices that install pavement markers quickly into the roadway, reducing time and risk for workers who treat the highways; and EZ Asphalt Technology LLC's devices that indicate at what temperature levels asphalt can crack.
