To meet the highway infrastructure challenges that lie ahead, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is refocusing and revitalizing its Infrastructure Research and Technology (R&T) Program to raise the bar on research, technology, and deployment activities. This program represents a new way of doing business for FHWA, with increased emphasis on stakeholder involvement and partnerships. The overall goals of the program are to enhance mobility and productivity, extend the life of pavements and bridges, and improve safety and performance. These goals require investing in four essential elements: information, people, technology, and deployment.
To share its Infrastructure R&T Vision with stakeholders, FHWA held an Infrastructure R&T Stakeholder Workshop in Chicago, Illinois, on October 31 and November 1, 2002. The workshop drew more than 60 representatives from highway agencies, associations and industry, and academia. The workshop was designed to give FHWA an opportunity to listen to stakeholders in order to refine its vision and to build stakeholder commitment to achieving infrastructure innovations. This report documents the Stakeholder Workshop discussions and recommendations. FHWA will use the workshop discussions and recommendations to revise and sharpen the Infrastructure R&T vision and help to define stakeholder involvement.
