DOT Announces Highway Carbon Reduction Program

$6.4 billion dedicated to enacting new guidance.

The Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration has announced the launch of the new Carbon Reduction Program (CRP). Created under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the CRP will make $6.4 billion available over the next five years to help states cut carbon emissions from America’s highway system. A wide range of projects that address highway carbon emissions are eligible for funding, including freight vehicle electrification, bus rapid transit corridors, and micro-mobility efforts.

“As the sector generating the most carbon emissions in the U.S. economy, transportation must play a leading role in solving the climate crisis,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “The Carbon Reduction Program will help reduce pollution from transportation and move us closer to the President’s ambitious goal of cutting emissions in half by 2030.”
