TRB Annual Meeting Sessions Feature SHRP Products and Technologies

Participants at the Transportation Research Board (TRB) 77th annual meeting, scheduled for January 11-15, 1998, in Washington, D.C., can choose from a range of sessions featuring the latest on the implementation of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) products and technologies.

Leading off the SHRP-related events will be the annual State/FHWA SHRP Coordinators Meeting on January 11 at the Sheraton Washington, which will include a general report on the status of SHRP implementation, discussions led by several Lead State team leaders, and an update on the long-term pavement performance program and products.

Another highlight of the many scheduled events is Session 12, "Strategic Highway Research Program: Implementation Lessons and Legacy." This session will be held Monday, January 12, at 8:00 a.m. at the Sheraton Washington. Speakers will discuss the progress made in the decade since SHRP began and the important lessons learned.

For more information on the State/FHWA Coordinators Meeting, contact Neil Hawks at TRB, 202-334-1426 (fax: 202-334-3471; email: nhawks@nas.edu).

For more information on the TRB annual meeting, call 202-334-3472. Information can also be found on the Web at www.nas.edu/trb/meeting.
