MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — Transportation research at the University of Idaho into fuel efficiency and pollution emissions got an important boost this week in the form of a $3.4 million federal grant.

The university's National Institute for Advance Transportation Technology announced the grant Friday. The federal cash enables the center to continue its research for a second year.

The center — one of only 10 like it in the country — is focused on reducing fuel consumption and lowering vehicle emissions by developing better ways to manage and operate the nation's transportation system.

UI researchers are focusing on engine design and traffic-control technology.

The first year of funding supported the foundational research at the center. The new grant enables researchers to test and implement their ideas.
