The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) national security strategic goal is to improve highway security and support national defense mobility through collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and our State, local government, private sector, and other Federal Agency partners. FHWA has further developed four objectives to meet this security strategic goal:

1. Develop a close working relationship with DHS and collaborate on establishment and implementation of highway-related security standards, administration of financial assistance for security initiatives, and distribution of threat and other sensitive security information to the highway industry.
2. Support national disaster preparedness, and response and recovery efforts.
3. Coordinate with our Nation’s military and transportation owners/operators to ensure adequate transportation facilities and operation in support of military deployment.
4. Initiate and facilitate research and technology development in support of a more secure highway system

This report, developed by the Office of Infrastructure Research and Development (R&D), proposes a plan addressing objectives 2 and 4 above. The plan focuses on bridge and tunnel security. R&D associated with securing other parts of our national highway system is being addressed by other offices within FHWA.
