DOT to Fund Two New University Transportation Centers

Applicants will compete for awards of $7.5 million for each center, and applicants must submit a required letter of intent by Oct. 12, 2018.

The U.S. Department of Transportation is making $15 million available to fund two new University Transportation Centers and is seeking applications from institutions of higher education to compete for recognition as new National UTCs. One center will focus on congestion relief, while the other will focus on improving the durability and extending the life of transportation infrastructure.

The funding for these two new UTCs was appropriated in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018. Applicants will compete for awards of $7.5 million for each center, and applicants must submit a required letter of intent by Oct. 12, 2018.

"Our universities are at the forefront of solution-oriented research addressing America's changing demographics and increased freight volumes," said Keith Nelson, senior advisor for research and technology. "These funds will support UTC programs that provide students with real opportunities to take part in cutting-edge transportation research."
