Implementation Assistance Program
The second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) was developed to help transportation professionals save time, money, and lives. To date, more than 700 volunteers have contributed to the program, and each one of the more than 100 research projects evolved from a pressing need identified by State and local transportation professionals. From the results of this research comes a series of products, called SHRP2 Solutions.
The Implementation Assistance Program is available to help State departments of transportation (DOTs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), and other interested organizations participate in the deployment of SHRP2 Solutions. In this first round, six products have been selected for implementation opportunities.
Detailed information about implementation is available for each product below by following the Apply link. There is also contact information for the key contact for each product on the product application page.
The first round of the SHRP2 Implementation Assistance Program closed in March, and assistance opportunities were announced on May 3, 2013. A second round of the Implementation Assistance Program is expected to be launched later this summer, rolling out the next series of SHRP2 Solutions.
Implementation assistance is available at three participation levels. Assistance will vary by product, depending on the status of product development and the next steps required to make the product market ready—taking into consideration the rate of current usage, risk, and geographic saturation. For more information and to apply for available opportunities, view the product page for each of the SHRP2 Solutions.
