New resources available on the Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP 2) Web site (www.trb.org/SHRP2) provide visitors with updates on SHRP 2 projects and progress, as well as opportunities for State transportation agencies to participate in the program's various research initiatives.
Launched in 2006, SHRP 2 will develop recommended procedures, practices, and applications to advance the Nation's highway system in the key focus areas of safety, renewal, reliability, and capacity. The new SHRP 2 Annual Report for 2007, Asking Why to Learn How, highlights the progress the program has made in the four focus areas. The report includes an overview of the program and the goals of the four focus areas, information on current projects, and details on outreach activities. The report is available at onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/shrp2/SHRP2AnnualReport.pdf.
Also available on the SHRP 2 site are quarterly program updates and information on partnership opportunities for transportation agencies to participate in SHRP 2 research projects. Current opportunities include projects in the capacity and renewal areas. This fall, SHRP 2 will start posting online project summaries that communicate the early outcomes of the program's research.
