Major Unit:

Transportation Research Board

Sub Unit: Transportation Research Board Consensus and Advisory Studies Division

RSO: Menzies, Thomas

Project Scope
This project will conduct a review of the highway research, development, and deployment efforts of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The review will include the whole process of research agenda setting, stakeholder involvement, conduct of research, peer review, and deployment. The study committee will provide strategic, research-policy level advice on topical priorities, processes, and strategies to accelerate the adoption of innovation. The committee will monitor and review FHWA's research and technology activities and advise FHWA on (a) research agenda setting and coordination of highway research with states, universities, and other partners, (b) strategies to accelerate the deployment and adoption of innovation, and (c) potential areas where research is needed. The committee will hold at least two meetings annually and report via letter report annually, as requested by FHWA. The committee will periodically produce full-length consensus reports.

This project, initiated in 1991, is sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation. Letter reports and other reports will be issued over the course of the committee's activities.
