This is a staff digest of the progress and status of NCHRP Project 20-6, Legal Problems Arising Out of Highway Programs. NCHRP Project 20-6 was established in 1968. It is a continuing study under the direction of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) staff Counsel for Legal Research. To date more than 90 study topics in the highway legal area have been researched under this project. More study topics are currently under contract for research or are pending selection of authors and execution of subcontracts. These studies are carried on at legal research centers or in transportation agencies throughout the United States. The publication "Selected Studies in Highway Law" (SSHL) was introduced by the TRB in 1976 as part of NCHRP Project 20-6. Included in this digest are the Table of Contents from SSHL Volumes 1-4, a list of NCHRP Research Results Digests and Legal Research Digests emanating from Project 20-6, membership of NCHRP Project Advisory Committee SP20-6, and a list of topics approved for study.
