Research and Technology (R&T) Program Portfolio
The primary goal of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) R&T program is to deliver research and development (R&D) directly that supports the strategic goals of FHWA and the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). FHWA’s R&T program identifies and addresses issues of national significance that are not or cannot be addressed by other research sponsors, including issues that require higher risk and/or longer term research and areas of specific Federal responsibility. The FHWA R&T program is responsible for conducting R&T activities that produce a clear public benefit, support Federal stewardship roles, meet and address current and emerging needs, and ensure the coordination of highway R&T activities.
The FHWA R&T program covers the entire innovation lifecycle, including agenda setting; conduct of R&D; technology testing and evaluation; deployment and evaluation of market-ready technologies and innovations; development of regulations and guidance; and technical assistance. This portfolio is just a glimpse into our research and technologies. The portfolio highlights selected R&T activities, initiatives, and projects from across the agency that we are working on for safer roads and to move the Nation forward toward economic growth and prosperity.
