Talking Freight Webinar: Completed TIGER Program Freight Projects – Success Stories

December 21, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

The TIGER Discretionary Grant Program, which started in 2009 as part of the Recovery Act, has now allocated $5.6 billion dollars to approximately 420 projects during the eight rounds of the program, a number of which were freight-focused projects.  Many of the projects selected in the early rounds of the TIGER Program have now been completed, and the experience those grantees had in implementing their projects could provide helpful insights for future TIGER projects and other discretionary grant programs, including the FASTLANE Grant Program.

This webinar will feature discussion about successfully implemented TIGER Program freight projects, both from the overall program point of view and from the individual project sponsors’ points of view.

The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) Office of Freight Management and Operations and the Office of Planning host the “Talking Freight” seminars. The seminars are part of a broader Freight Professional Development Program aimed at providing technical assistance, training, tools, and information to help the freight and planning workforce meet the transportation challenges of tomorrow. Seminars are held via web conference on a monthly basis throughout the year and are open at no cost to all interested parties in both the public and private sectors. There is no special equipment required to participate, all that is needed is a computer with Internet connectivity to view the presentations and audio can either be heard over the computer or phone.
