Federal Highway Administration Research and Technology: Coordinating, Developing, and Delivering Highway Transportation Innovations

 

 

Planned Research


Based on broad scanning conducted over the past year inside and outside traditional areas of highway research inquiry, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) identifies exploratory advanced research topics that (1) involve discoveries in science of new technology that have the potential to lead to revolutionary change, (2) address significant current or anticipated issues in highway transportation, (3) can engage researcher and facilities with the capacity to solve complex problems that cut across or push the frontiers of traditional disciplines, (4) would not move forward without FHWA funding.
