Accelerated Construction Technology Transfer (ACTT)

An aging system faces increasing traffic demand. Highway construction has intensified in recent years to address two challenges. First, much of the Nation’s aging highway infrastructure was built during the 1950s and 1960s and needs to be rehabilitated or replaced. Second, although highway capacity remained virtually unchanged during the past several decades, traffic demand increased tremendously, causing high levels of congestion. Large construction projects to improve outdated roads and bridges compound traffic problems during extensive construction periods. Today’s motorists demand high-quality roads, but they want them put in place as quickly as possible; they will not settle for a “business as usual” approach.
