Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21)

MAP-21, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (P.L. 112-141), was signed into law by President Obama on July 6, 2012. Funding surface transportation programs at over $105 billion for fiscal years (FY) 2013 and 2014, MAP-21 is the first long-term highway authorization enacted since 2005.

MAP-21 is a milestone for the U.S. economy and the Nation’s surface transportation program. By transforming the policy and programmatic framework for investments to guide the system’s growth and development, MAP-21 creates a streamlined and performance-based surface transportation program and builds on many of the highway, transit, bike, and pedestrian programs and policies established in 1991.

The Southeast Region (Region 4) of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS, the Service) has initiated the development of its first Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). With the assistance of the Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division (EFLHD) of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Service’s Southeast Region (FWS Region 4) is developing a twenty-year plan for the preservation, enhancement, operations and maintenance of its transportation assets across all of its national wildlife refuges and fish hatcheries in the southeastern states and U.S. outlying areas.

This plan accomplishes the following:

  • Assesses the current and future conditions of the Service’s transportation assets.
  • Determines transportation needs, as well as the identification of those potential projects and policies to address those needs.
  • Establishes priorities based on project performance, available funding, and coordination opportunities with other federal, state, and local agencies.
