THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY INSTITUTE: A 25-YEAR RECORD OF ACHIEVEMENT

The National Highway Institute (NHI)--the training arm of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)--is a vital provider of highway technology to national and international highway communities. Established as part of the 1970 Highway Act, the NHI was charged with developing and administering training programs of instruction for FHWA and State and local highway department employees engaged or to be engaged in Federal-aid highway work. This comprehensive article describes NHI's mission, its legacy, and the NHI today. The mission of the NHI was expanded by Congress in 1992. At the present time, NHI offers state, international, university, industry, college curriculum, and grant programs. These technology transfer programs are state of the art and the NHI is highly esteemed the world over.
