Highways For Life

  1. Stylized drawings of highways and constructionHighways for LIFE is highly responsive to the demands of the public.

    Three national surveys conducted in 2000 found that "improvements in traffic flow, pavement conditions, and work zones may result in the greatest rise in traveler satisfaction. Work zones are especially critical as travelers view road repairs as a major reason for traffic delays."

  2. Proven technology and practices exist.

    Technology and practices needed to achieve improved safety, reduced congestion due to construction, and improved quality has been proven, but have seen only sporadic use.

  3. The highway industry needs to leap, not creep.

    Absent dramatic changes in our approach to promoting technology and innovation, realizing the full potential of these advancements will take decades.

  4. Leadership is critical!

    Our stakeholders are demanding national leadership.

  5. Highways for LIFE is a solution!

    We have conceived a plan that will bring about a tremendous leap forward in highway construction practice, instead of the creep that is currently ongoing.

  6. The highway community and the public will accrue ongoing benefits.

    Highways for LIFE is not simply a program of building a few projects, it is a way increasing the return on all of our future highway construction investments.
