The White House launched a new dashboard on Wednesday that tracks the progress of high priority infrastructure projects as they go through the regulatory review and permitting process.
The Federal Infrastructure Projects Dashboard is an open government project that already includes information on projects on transportation, green infrastructure, renewable energy, water conservation and delivery, oil and gas and housing and community development.
Federal Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra highlighted one of the projects on the White House blog, the Next Generation Air Transportation System in Houston. The project is a comprehensive modernization of the nation’s air traffic infrastructure.
“On the new dashboard, you can find details about the efforts to redesign the airspace and flight paths in the Houston Metroplex,” Chopra said. “The project is poised to enter its detailed design phase, and thanks to the dashboard you can now follow its progress with information from the project leader who is accountable for getting it done.”
