TRB Annual Meeting Sessions Feature SHRP Technologies

Among the technologies featured at the Transportation Research Board (TRB) 79th Annual Meeting, scheduled for January 9-13, 2000, in Washington, DC, will be numerous ones developed under the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP). A range of presentations will highlight the latest in the implementation of these technologies by States and contractors.

SHRP product implementation will also be covered at the SHRP/LTPP Coordinators Meeting on January 9, 2000. For more information on the meeting, 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, including a complete list of sessions, can also be found on the Web at www4.nationalacademies.org/trb/annual.nsf.
