On November 15, 2021, President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act(IIJA)(Public Law 117-58, also known as the “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law”) into law. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is the largest long-term investment in our infrastructure and economy in our Nation’s history. It provides $550 billion over fiscal years 2022 through 2026 in new Federal investment in infrastructure, including in roads, bridges, and mass transit, water infrastructure, resilience, and broadband.

This web site will be your one-stop shop for information about the portions of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law related to the Federal Highway Administration's Office of Operations. We will add information on a regular basis as implementation progresses, and we invite you to visit the site often.

For further information about all the FHWA-related sections of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, please visit https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/bipartisan-infrastructure-law/. For additional details regarding the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, including provisions that impact other agencies within the U.S. Department of Transportation, please refer to the USDOT site at https://www.transportation.gov/bipartisan-infrastructure-law.

Reduction of Truck Emissions at Port Facilities (RTEPF) Grant Program

The RTEPF Grant Program is a new program created as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that will 1) study how ports and intermodal port transfer facilities would benefit from increased opportunities to reduce emissions at ports, including through the electrification of port operations, 2) study emerging technologies and strategies that may help reduce port-related emissions from idling trucks, and 3) coordinate and provide funding to test, evaluate, and deploy projects that reduce port-related emissions from idling trucks, including through the advancement of port electrification and improvements in efficiency, focusing on port operations, including heavy-duty commercial vehicles, and other related projects.
