Fiscal Year 2006 Research Project Status Summary - Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center

The following figures and charts reflect the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Research, Development, and Technology (RD&T) fiscal year (FY) 2006 progress in conducting the program of research identified in the Research, Development, and Technology Performance Plan: Fiscal Year 2006–2007 (FHWA-HRT-06-037). FHWA is publishing this information as part of its commitment to hold themselves accountable publicly for carrying out its research plan. During FY 2006, researchers at the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center (TFHRC) conducted 127 research projects that support the Agency’s strategic goals of Safety, Mobility and Productivity, Global Connectivity, Environment, National Homeland Security, and Organizational Excellence. Of the total number of projects, 44 were completed by FY end, and 83 projects are ongoing. Eighty percent of the total number of projects were on schedule. For those research projects that were not on schedule in FY 2006, delays were due to staff changes and delayed availability of funds. Twelve projects in the original plan will not be conducted due to lack of funds and revised priorities. Fifteen projects that were unanticipated when the FY 2006/2007 performance plan was developed were added to the list. These 15 projects were identified as priorities based on stakeholder input following the passage of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU).
