Next Generation Transportation Solutions
A new series of fact sheets available from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) highlights the next generation transportation solutions of FHWA's Exploratory Advanced Research (EAR) Program.
The EAR Program focuses on long-term, high-risk research with a high payoff potential. The program addresses underlying gaps faced by applied highway research programs, anticipates emerging issues with national implications, and reflects broad transportation industry goals and objectives.
Fact sheets now available include Real-Time Measurement of Soil Stiffness During Static Compaction (Pub. No. FHWA-HRT-09-047) and Increasing Highway Throughput: Communications and Control Technologies to Improve Traffic Flow (Pub. No. FHWA-HRT-09-037). To see the full list of fact sheets and to download copies, visit www.fhwa.dot.gov/advancedresearch/pubs.cfm. Printed copies are available at no charge from the FHWA Research, Development, and Technology Products Distribution Center, 814-239-1160 (email: Report.Center@dot.gov).
