The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Technology and Innovation Deployment Program includes $85 million in grant funds to accelerate the use and deployment of advanced construction management systems (ADCMS) as authorized under section 13006 of the IIJA. ADCMS are defined as commercially proven digital technologies and processes for management of construction and engineering activities.
The funding will be allocated to a program with the following goals:
- Support states in implementing technology to maximize interoperability, boost productivity, and reduce project delays and overruns throughout the construction lifecycle
- Reduce reliance on paper documents to increase the timeliness and effectiveness of information sharing
- Help state and local governments adopt tools that help them integrate technology into contracts and weigh the costs of digitization more effectively
- Reduce the environmental impact of construction projects
Many innovative DOTs, such as California DOT (Caltrans) are already using ADCMS technologies to achieve benefits such as time and cost savings, increased productivity and efficiency, and improved infrastructure resilience and sustainability.
