TRB Annual Meeting Sessions Highlight SHRP Technologies

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) 78th annual meeting, scheduled for January 10-14, 1999, in Washington, D.C., will feature numerous sessions highlighting the latest in the implementation of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) products and technologies.

The SHRP-related sessions begin with the 11th annual State/FHWA SHRP Coordinators Meeting on January 10, 1999. The meeting will feature an analysis of the impact of the TEA-21 legislation on SHRP implementation efforts, discussions led by the heads of the Lead States teams, and an update on the activities of the long-term pavement performance program.

Later that day the TRB-SHRP Committee and the Federal Highway Administration are also sponsoring a special session on the new technology deployment program (2:00 p.m., Marriott Washington). This program is designed to accelerate the adoption of innovative technologies.

For more information on the State/FHWA SHRP Coordinators Meeting or the technology deployment session, contact Neil Hawks at TRB, 202-334-1430 (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/index.html.
