Advancing the Future of Concrete Pavement Technology

After 5 years of research into improved technologies and methodologies for concrete pavement construction, the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Concrete Pavement Technology Program (CPTP) continues to provide valuable new tools for transportation engineers and planners.

From Vertical to Horizontal: Learning from the Innovations of the Building Construction Industry

From New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport to the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, observing and learning from the innovations of the vertical construction industry (i.e., buildings and related facilities) was the goal of a domestic technology scanning tour sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Modeled on the international technology scanning program jointly sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and FHWA, the scan was facilitated by the Civil Engineering Research Foundation.

A Digital World of Pavements

A world of pavement information is now available with one click at www.fhwa.dot.gov/pavement/. The Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) new topic-based Web site is the one-stop destination for information on everything from pavement design and construction to maintenance and rehabilitation.

Announcing the 2006 FHWA Excellence in Utilities Awards Program

The Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) new Excellence in Utilities Awards Program will honor highway agencies and contractors that excel in streamlining or improving the utility relocation and accommodation process while protecting the rights of property owners.
