SHRP2: Apply Now for Round 3 Implementation Assistance
Innovative geotechnical solutions, tools for constructing precast concrete pavements, and strategies for managing utility conflicts are among the products available in the third round of the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) Implementation Assistance Program.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) are accepting applications until February 14, 2014, for funding assistance to implement the new products. Round 3 recipients will be announced in March.
More than 100 research projects conducted under SHRP2 have resulted in an array of advanced tools and technologies for improving highway safety, renewal, reliability, and capacity. These tools and technologies are now being released as SHRP2 Solutions products. Funding awarded through the Implementation Assistance Program helps State transportation agencies, metropolitan planning organizations, tribal agencies, local agencies, and others as they implement new products. Depending on the product, implementation assistance is available at three participation levels: proof of concept pilot, lead adopter incentive, and user incentive.
