TestAmerica's Support For Transportation Projects

TestAmerica has supported more than 850 Department of Transportation (DOT) projects in more than 25 states.  Services include waste characterization for sample disposal, water quality testing for NPDES, storm water and TMDL programs, soil testing and sediment testing in support of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and other river, port and harbor programs.

The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST), authorized $305 billion over five years for highway, transit and rail programs. It is the first law enacted in over ten years that provides long-term funding certainty for surface transportation. Upon passage of the FAST Act, the DOT quickly awarded funding to States and other grantees.  About $40 billion in funds were apportioned to States in January, 2016.

The law also reduced the bureaucratic red tape that can stall and delay transportation projects from moving forward. The FAST Act adopted a number of Administration proposals to speed permitting processes while still protecting the environment.

TestAmerica’s network of laboratories is certified in every available state in the nation and is positioned to support infrastructure projects throughout the country.  Service centers provide sampling kits and convenient sample drop off locations and couriers are available to pick up samples.
