Abstract

The freedom to try innovative methods and tools can lead to a safer, more efficient, and more cost-effective transportation system. To facilitate such exploration, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC) Incentive program helps fund state projects that put innovative approaches into practice. The program encourages all states, including Iowa, to identify and implement innovative solutions through collaboration among a variety of experts in government, private industry, and academia. Iowa has successfully applied STIC funding to a wide range of projects since 2014. The STIC Incentive program allows Iowa to pilot and implement new and innovative transportation ideas that might otherwise be time- or cost-prohibitive. Thanks to the continued input of an advisory council made up of stakeholders across Iowa’s transportation community, the projects funded through the program are tailored to meet Iowa’s evolving needs and directly impact Iowans.
