The FHWA R&T Leadership Team
The FHWA R&T Leadership Team is accountable for implementing the Agency’s RT&E program. FHWA leadership continually strives to improve the RT&E program to ensure the appropriate Federal role and strategies for investing in and conducting research and development. The RT&E program works on behalf of and in support of our partners and stakeholders in both exploratory advanced research (focused specifically on longer term and higher risk breakthrough research with the potential for transformational improvements) and applied research (focused on developing products that can be delivered to practitioners within a few years).
The R&T Leadership Team consists of the FHWA Executive Director, the Chief Innovation Officer, the Chief Financial Officer, the Chief Technical Services Officer, a representative of the Directors of Field Services, and the associate administrators for: Research, Development, and Technology; Safety; Infrastructure; Operations; and Planning, Environment, and Realty.
