Input on Round 7 Alternative Fueling Corridors
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) designates Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFCs) to support the installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging and other alternative fueling infrastructure at strategic locations along major national highways. Federal funding opportunities like the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Funding and the Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Programs are tied to federally-designated AFCs. FHWA solicits nominations annually from state and local officials to respond to the rapidly evolving state of vehicle technology. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is developing a nomination application for submission to FHWA by June 21, 2023.
VDOT is seeking input from local and state partners, regional transportation agencies, MPOs, planning districts, Virginia residents, and other stakeholders on Round 7 AFC nominations. If you are interested in providing your feedback, please take the anonymous six-question survey open through Monday, June 12, 2023 here: https://publicinput.com/round7afcs
