Near Road Collaboration Project

The objective of this Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) collaboration is to determine certain ambient air concentrations and variations in concentrations as a function of distance from the highway and to establish relationships between ambient air concentrations as related to highway traffic flows including traffic count, vehicle types and speeds; and meteorological conditions such as wind speed and wind direction. As such, the Near Road Collaboration Project would be expected to provide data detailing concentrations and distributions of motor vehicle emitted pollutants including criteria pollutants such as PM2.5 and mobile source air toxics.
