The CASE Webtool: FHWA’s Powerful Tool to Help Owners Evaluate Project Delivery Methods

When an infrastructure project takes the first steps from vague idea towards becoming a reality, public owners must make countless decisions on how to advance the project. One decision of particular importance is the selection of the project delivery method, which has significant impacts on the project’s timeline and budget. While many owners are familiar with a variety of project delivery methods, including alternative delivery methods such as design-build, construction manager-at-risk and public-private partnerships, knowing when to choose one option over another can ...

Is Green Power the Future of Clean Water?

To mitigate the effects of climate change and years of drought, California plans to double the amount of recycled water produced in the state by 2040 – but is producing more water enough? There’s a rising trend of building energy recovery facilities in wastewater facilities to reduce the reliance on existing utility providers and powering the plant with biogas generated from sludge processing and co-digestion of organic waste diverted from landfills. Are energy recovery facilities a passing trend, or are they the future of clean water in California? …

Key Considerations for Zero-Emission Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure in California

California is at the forefront of adopting a more sustainable transportation system, with a strong commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality. A critical aspect of this effort is the widespread adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), including hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and electric vehicles (EVs). Critically, this transition relies heavily on the availability and accessibility of robust charging infrastructure. To facilitate California’s goal of getting 1.5 million ZEVs on California roads by 2025, industry experts and policymakers ...

How Government Funding Dysfunction Limits Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Implementation

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act or “IIJA” (P.L. 117-58) passed on a bipartisan basis in both the House and Senate and was signed by the President one month ago today, on November 15, 2021. One could have assumed that federal agencies would begin allocating the new funding and commence implementation of the IIJA as soon as it became effective. Unfortunately, that is not the case, but for reasons that may not be readily apparent.

The federal government is actually constrained in its ability to implement the IIJA because it is currently funded and operating under a ...
