SHRP Events Set for TRB's Annual Meeting

The latest developments in the implementation of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) products and technologies will be featured in sessions, meetings, and exhibits during the Transportation Research Board's (TRB) 76th annual meeting, to be held January 12-16, 1997, in Washington, D.C.

The annual State SHRP coordinators meeting will kick off the SHRP-related activities. The SHRP coordinators will meet Sunday, January 12, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Washington Ballroom at the Sheraton Washington Hotel. The morning session will provide an overview of the status of SHRP implementation and the on-going long-term pavement performance (LTPP) studies. At noon, the meeting will move to the exhibit hall, for a special session of the Road Savers Fair.

A special session, "Bringing Research to Reality: Shaping the Future of Transportation Research and Technology, " will be held Sunday, January 12, from 3:30 to 5:15 p.m. in the Washington Ballroom at the Sheraton Washington. This session, open to all TRB attendees, will feature State and Federal officials and other leaders of the SHRP initiative. The speakers will reflect on the unique history of SHRP, the lessons learned from the program, and the innovative partnerships formed to implement SHRP products. In addition, speakers will assess how well the expectations of SHRP have been met and highlight results from a recent study on the return on investment in SHRP. The session will also focus on the future role of research and technology as reauthorization of the Federal-aid surface transportation program approaches.

The international SHRP coordinators meeting will take place Monday, January 13, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Kansas Room at the Sheraton Washington. The session, which is open to representatives of highway agencies throughout the world, will provide an update on North American and international LTPP activities. The meeting will also allow an exchange of ideas on international cooperation and future research.

The TRB annual meeting will also feature dozens of presentations on SHRP technologies and research. The highlight will be a special session on the economic benefits of SHRP. A preliminary schedule of all presentations can be found at TRB's World Wide Web site (http://www.nas.edu/trb/meeting/index.html).

Highway agencies across the country are using SHRP technologies to save money, save time, and save lives. To learn more, take a trip to the Road Savers Fair at the TRB annual meeting. The Fair will highlight the benefits of SHRP products and celebrate the 10th anniversary of SHRP's inception.

The Fair will feature exhibits in eight technology areas:

  • Superpave system.
  • High-performance concrete.
  • Anti-icing technologies/road weather information systems.
  • Innovative pavement maintenance materials and pavement preservation.
  • Alkali-silica reactivity.
  • Assessment, protection, and rehabilitation of reinforced concrete structures.
  • Long-term pavement performance (LTPP) products and research.
  • Work zone safety.

Information will also be available on how highway agencies in local governments and from around the world are implementing SHRP technologies.

Representatives from the Lead States in each technology area will be on hand at each exhibit to answer your questions and discuss their experiences.

The Road Savers Fair will be held in Exhibit Hall B in the Sheraton Washington Hotel. The hours are as follows:

  • Sunday, Jan. 12, 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. (reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.)
  • Monday, Jan. 13, 9:45 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Jan. 14, 9:45 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Jan. 15, 10:00 a.m. to noon and 2:00 to 7:30 p.m. (reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.)
