About Route Fifty


Connecting state and local government leaders

Route Fifty connects the people and ideas advancing state, county and municipal government across the United States.

We’re particularly interested in stories about technology and innovation at the state and local level. But we cover a variety of topics under the larger state, county and municipal government umbrella beyond technology and innovation, including issues like management, budgeting, best practices, smart ideas, open data, open government and public services. 

Stay up to date on all these topics and more by subscribing to our daily newsletter, Route Fifty Today, and by downloading our app for iOS.

Route Fifty is a digital news publication from Government Executive Media Group, which also publishes Government Executive magazine, GovExec, Nextgov and Defense One. Initially launched as www.govexec.com’s State & Local channel in July 2014, Route Fifty and expanded to a standalone Government Executive Media Group digital publication, RouteFifty.com, in April 2015.
