About the Technology Partnerships Program

Piloted under the Highways for LIFE Program, the Technology Partnerships Program partnered with organizations and companies within the highway construction industry to accelerate the adoption of promising innovations that had the potential to make a significant contribution to improving project and/or work zone safety, reducing construction congestion, accelerating construction, or improving quality.

The program provided grants under a broad solicitation to help the highway industry make the leap from promising late-stage prototypes to market-ready products. Competition was open to all nonprofit and for-profit organizations except State and local governments and institutions of higher education. State and local agencies, local municipalities, and academic institutions were excluded from competition as prime awardees but were encouraged to participate as partners to help test and evaluate the innovations.

Awardees are from the following categories:

•   Bridge Technologies

•   Pavement-Related Technologies

•   Safety Product Performance Evaluations

•   Safety-Related Technologies
