Assessing Highway Research and Development Priorities

This article discusses the history and activities of the Research and Technology Coordinating Committee (RTCC). In 1991, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) asked the National Academies, through the Transportation Research Board, to convene the RTCC. Funded by FHWA, the committee provides a continuing, independent assessment of FHWA’s research, development and technology (RD&T) activities. Of particular interest to the committee is the structure and funding of highway RD&T; the setting of RD&T priorities; the way that the various highway research programs are coordinated and interact; and how technology transfer is organized so that highway agencies use research products effectively and efficiently in building, operating, and maintaining the nation’s highways.
