FEDERALLY COORDINATED PROGRAM OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION, VOLUME6--CONSTRUCTION, MAINTENANCE, IMPLEMENTATION, AND MANAGEMENT

Approximately $50 million is expended each year on Federally supported highway research. In addition, substantial research is conducted by States, universities, private industry and foreign countries. It is important, therefore, that the results coming from this research effort are not only implemented, but are also documented in an appropriate form for use by others. More often than not, research and development results are not immediately or directly useful to others because some additional assembly, interpretation, or similar action is needed. To be truly useful, research results must be stated in a language and format that is most useful to operating personnel. The Federally Coordinated Program emphasizes the development and transfer of research results into practice; e.g., bridging the gap between research and operations. The objective of this category is to stimulate and expand the application and practical use of the products of highway research and development. To achieve this objective, the program will emphasize the development of an environment that is conducive to nationally coordinated and cooperative implementation efforts by FHWA, State highway agencies and other highway organizations. It will also emphasize systematic management and the assessment of the success of implementation including the benefits realized. /FHWA/
