Every Day Counts Update

by Matt Cate, P.E.

Here is an update regarding items of interest from the Federal Highway Administration’s Every Day Counts (EDC) program.

EDC 3 Initiatives in Tennessee
At the group’s most recent meeting in June, members of Tennessee’s State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC) received an update on the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s efforts to evaluate and/or implement initiatives from the third round of EDC innovations.

EDC 4 Initiatives Announced
In June, FHWA released the list of innovations that will make up the fourth round of the Every Day Counts initiative. These innovations will be rolled out in greater detail over the remainder of 2016 as state DOTs, LTAP centers, industry associations, and other transportation stakeholders participate in regional EDC Summits during the fall.

TDOT will select a subset of these innovations for exploration and implementation as a part of the EDC summits. Some of these innovations will be featured in future EDC Exchanges. Watch future issues of RoadTalk for additional information. To learn more about the EDC 4 innovations, visit the EDC website at
