This Legal Research Digest is an NCHRP staff summary of the progress and status of NCHRP Project 20-6, "Legal Problems Arising Out of Highway Programs", for which the Transportation Research Board is the agency conducting the research. NCHRP Project 20-6 was established in 1968. To date more than 100 study topics in the highway legal area have been researched under this project. More study projects are currently being conducted. These studies are conducted by legal researchers and attorneys throughout the United States. "Selected Studies in Highway Law" (SSHL) was introduced by the Transportation Research Board in 1976 as part of NCHRP Project 20-6. Its purpose is to furnish thoroughly researched reference material on highway and transportation law. This Legal Research Digest contains three tables showing, respectively, the contents of SSHL, NCHRP Legal Research Results Digests emanating from Project 20-6, and topics approved for study.
