Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users

Welcome to the Federal Surface Transportation Program
SAFETEA-LU Training Videos!

On August 10, 2005, the President signed into law the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, known as SAFETEA-LU. The Federal Surface Transportation Program is amended every several years through multiyear authorization acts; such as TEA-21 (1998-2004) and now the current SAFETEA_LU (2005-2009). SAFETEA-LU is the largest surface transportation investment in our Nation's history; totaling $244.1 billion. It authorizes Federal surface transportation programs for highways, bridges, public trails, enhancements, highway safety, and transit for the 5-year period 2005-2009. In addition, the Act substantially increases funding for a number of programs relevant to Federal Land Management Agencies.

The potential for partnerships is huge. However, employees may have difficulty locating the specific information they need because of the size and complexity of the program. The Forest Service (FS), Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have jointly developed these training videos to show how the various programs authorized within SAFETEA-LU can benefit public lands and their neighboring communities. We have called upon the nation’s best subject matter experts to help sort out the various programs in the Federal Surface Transportation Program and provide the specific information that fits the work being done in the field.
