Federal Highway Administration Research and Technology: Coordinating, Developing, and Delivering Highway Transportation Innovations


Priority, Market-Ready Technologies and Innovations



Each year, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) spends much time, money, and energy toward developing and deploying innovations that are designed to meet critical highway needs. These efforts reach much farther when the benefits of promising technologies and innovations are marketed effectively, communicated, and understood by potential users. To maximize the effectiveness of promising technologies, FHWA reviewed how technologies were deployed or marketed and has identified 24 priority, market-ready technologies and innovations that the Agency has designated as "push" technologies, as well as other solutions that are presently being successfully deployed. Each month the Corporate Research and Technology Web site will profile one of these technologies. Note that the list of priority, market-ready technologies will periodically change as new technologies are added and as others reach a level of deployment such that they can be removed from the priority list.
