About SHRP2

SHRP2 delivers solutions that help transportation professionals save lives, money, and time.

The second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) has undertaken more than 100 research projects designed to address critical state and local challenges, such as aging infrastructure, congestion, and safety. The research results are now being made available in a series of effective solutions that will improve the way transportation professionals plan, operate, maintain, and ensure safety on America’s roadways.

Authorized in the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), SHRP2 builds on the success of the first SHRP, which produced, among other innovations, Superpave – a process for creating more durable roads – and new technology for addressing snow and ice. The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) has authorized additional funding to support implementation activities.

SHRP2 will continue to launch proven innovations through 2015 as research and pilot projects are completed. By implementing SHRP2 Solutions, the transportation community will more efficiently strengthen the Nation’s highway system to serve us through the 21st century.
