Federal Highway Administration Invites States to Designate 'Zero-Emission' and 'Alternative Fuel' Corridors

The initiative will help drivers find alternative fuels and contribute to smart city development.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has called on state and local officials to nominate routes where drivers can find alternative fuels, according to its news release. "Zero-emission" and "alternative fuel" corridors help fulfill part of the "Fixing America's Surface Transportation" (FAST) Act.

"We can't have Smart Cities without Smart Highways," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. "Making sure drivers with alternative fuel vehicles can use the national highway system, rather than being limited only to local areas, is the next step in advancing America's transportation network."

As part of the provision, officials would designate national electric vehicle charging and hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling corridors along major highways. By supporting alternative fuels with lower emissions, the U.S. government hopes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the country.

"By identifying where alternative fueling stations can be found we can accelerate the use of innovative next-generation vehicles, improve air quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and ensure our transportation network meets the needs of 21st-century drivers," said Federal Highway Administrator Gregory Nadeau.
