The FHWA Research and Technology (R&T) Program directly supports the goals of the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) and FHWA to invest strategically in transportation infrastructure, promoting safe and secure transportation, enhancing our environment, and creating new alliances between the Nation’s transportation and technology industries.
DOT’s approach to research emphasizes cooperation, information-sharing, and the development of formal research agendas among the agencies within DOT and across the entire Government. It promotes partnerships with State and local governments, academia, and the private sector to cost-effectively accelerate the transformation of new technologies, concepts, and ideas into better transportation systems, processes, and services.
The DOT Research and Development (R&D) Plan identifies key enabling elements that will transform our transportation services and help bring those improvements to pass.
