Much like people, every road, every highway, has its own personality...its own character

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

Welcome to the Eastern Federal Lands Highway (EFLHD) a Division of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Freedom of Information Act web page. This site is designed to familiarize you with the specific procedures for making a request for records controlled by the Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division (EFLHD).

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Title 5 of the United States Code, section 552, generally provides that any person has the right to request access to federal agency records of information. All agencies of the U.S. Government are required to disclose records upon receiving a written request, except those records that are protected from disclosure pursuant to nine exemptions and three exclusions of the FOIA. The FOIA applies only to federal agencies and does not create a right of access to records held by Congress, the courts, or by state or local government agencies. Any requests for state or local government records should be directed to the appropriate state or local government agency.

Please follow the listed below steps when submitting a FOIA Request for EFLHD documents:

  • All requests should be made in writing and should include requestor’s name, address email address (if they have one) and a telephone number when they can be contacted during business hours
  • Clearly indicate that the request is being made under the FOIA.
  • Provide information which describes the documents that they are seeking.
  • Requests should be sent to:
