Who we are and what we do

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Research, Development, and Technology (RD&T) is organized into 8 offices with 15 teams of experts in more than 30 transportation-related disciplines. Three research and development (R&D) offices—Operations, Safety, and Infrastructure—conduct R&D to continually improve highway operations and intelligent transportation systems (ITS), safety, and infrastructure, respectively.

The Office of Corporate Research, Technology, and Innovation Management leads change and provides a comprehensive approach to managing advanced and applied research programs, communicating corporate messages from agenda setting through impact assessment; develops and executes policy, budget, program management, and administrative mechanisms to add value and quality continually to a nationwide FHWA R&T program; and develops and executes comprehensive R&T communications and marketing strategies, plans, and evaluation methods, which support FHWA-wide R&T programs and R&T services to FHWA offices. The Office of Resource Management provides administrative services for RD&T.

RD&T also manages the FHWA R&T Program, which directly supports the goals of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) to invest strategically in transportation infrastructure, promote safe and secure transportation, enhance our environment, and create new alliances between the Nation's transportation and technology industries.

In virtually everything we do, we coordinate and/or collaborate extensively with other FHWA and DOT offices, State and local government partners, academic organizations, companies in the industry, military research offices, and professional organizations. In an effort to involve stakeholders and partners, and improve RD&T, FHWA is implementing a Corporate Master Plan that centers on Agency commitments and principles.

We are proud of our contributions, products, and services that quickly and cost-effectively accelerate and transform new technologies and concepts into better transportation systems, processes, and services. With our partners, we improve our national quality of life. To be successful, we must respond to the needs of our national transportation system and its users—society at large. We meet the challenge by constantly emphasizing and demonstrating innovation.

Research that is Essential, Indispensable, and Connected to our Customers.
