Every Day Counts
What is EDC?
Every Day Counts (EDC) is the FHWA's initiative to advance a culture of innovation in the transportation community in partnership with public and private stakeholders. Every two years, FHWA works with state departments of transportation, local governments, tribes, private industry, and other stakeholders to identify a new set of innovative technologies and practices that merit widespread deployment through EDC.
The 'Every Day Counts' program, or EDC, introduces transportation planners, engineers, and designers to innovative ways of solving problems. Whether you're struggling with a small county bridge, working to reduce pedestrian fatalities, or trying to tackle a major interstate highway interchange, the EDC program can help you come up with innovative and time-saving solutions. Communities across the nation are discovering how simple changes through the Every Day Counts program can save lives and improve safety.
