About Highways for LIFE

The purpose of Highways for LIFE (HfL) was to advance longer-lasting highway infrastructure using Innovations to accomplish the Fast construction of Efficient and safe highways and bridges. The three goals of HfL were to improve safety during and after construction, reduce congestion caused by construction, and improve the quality of the highway infrastructure.

Specifically, HfL was focused on accelerating the adoption of innovations in the highway community. For a number of reasons, that adoption has traditionally been measured, not merely in years, but in decades! A recent example was the adoption of the SuperPave asphalt binder specification which began in 1992 and was adopted by the 50th State in 2004. In fact, SuperPave has been cited as an example of accelerated adoptionby AASHTO, the States and FHWA that was supported by specifically authorized funding.
