Philly receives SMART Grant from U.S. Department of Transportation

Officials with the City of Philadelphia announced it had been awarded a $2 million U.S. Department of Transportation grant for the Philadelphia Digital Right of Way and Mobility (ROW) Improvement project.

The grant, part of the Strengthening Mobility and Revolutionizing Transportation (SMART) Grants Program, will allow the city to support digitizing street, sidewalk, and curbside space within the project area and developing an online application to communicate ROW information to ROW users, officials said…

Officials said the project will build upon other city efforts, including SmartCityPHL’s Smart Loading Zones Pilot project started in Fall 2022, focusing on safe and efficient curb space solutions.
