Federal-aid Essentials for Local Public Agencies

Local public agencies now have a centralized hub for guidance, policies, procedures, and best practices for administering federal-aid projects. 

FHWA worked with state and local partners to create a library of videos covering key aspects of the project development and delivery process to help local governments get the information they need about the Federal-Aid Highway Program. 

The video library is accessible from any computer or mobile device with Internet access. 

The videos each focus on a single topic, are all less than 10 minutes long.
