R&T Portfolio: Federal Lands Highway Research

Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Federal Lands Highway (FLH) works to improve transportation to and within Federal and Tribal lands by providing technical services to Federal partners and local stakeholders. The FLH Research Program covers strategic goals identified by the Innovation and Research Council (IRC). The IRC is a chartered group composed of top officials in Federal land management agencies (FLMA), and other partner agencies, that provides direction for research investment.

The FLH, along with the IRC, is strategically investing into the following subject areas: (1) Safety, (2) Infrastructure Integrity, (3) Climate/Sustainability/ Resiliency, (4) Racial Equity/Justice, (5) Rural Economic Opportunities, (6) Transformation/ Acceleration of Discovery and Implementation, (7) Environmental Stewardship, and (8) Customer Experience and Mobility. By focusing on these subjects, plus Tribal Nations and Lands as the ninth subject area, FHWA and its partners ensure the many national treasures within our Federal lands can be enjoyed by all.
