With the increasing support of alternatively fueled cars playing a more increasing role in transportation. The U.S.’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has designated 35 states to be used as an alternative fuel corridors. With the increase of alternative fueling stations across the country the “Fix America’s Surface Transportation Act” will hopefully achieve success in one of the major directives of the law. New signage similar to the ones already deployed will be added to help drivers find these alternative fueling places. Electric vehicle charging, hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fuels are among the new stations to be built.
- The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced 55 routes that will serve as the basis for a national network of “alternative fuel” corridors spanning 35 states.
- The designation of these corridors fulfills a directive in the “Fixing America’s Surface Transportation” (FAST) Act.
- By supporting lower-emission vehicles, alternative fuel corridors will help to reduce transportation emissions, the leading source of U.S. GHG emissions.
