The reports, brochures, and other publications detailing the results of the project to assess the costs versus benefits of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) are now available both online and in print. The information in those publications substantiates the preliminary findings reported earlier this year (see March 1997 Focus), which indicated that SHRP products save money, time, and lives. In recognition of those savings, the SHRP products have been dubbed "RoadSavers."
The RoadSavers Web site (www.ota.fhwa.dot.gov/roadsvr) includes more than 100 case studies, a series of in-depth technical reports, a family of brochures, and a summary report. The case studies can be viewed either by State or by product. Products are listed within six general categories:
The site also includes information on ordering the printed materials and a videotape summarizing the project's findings.
The summary project report, titled From Research to Reality: Assessing the Results of the Strategic Highway Research Program, will be mailed to all Focus subscribers in January 1998.
