A Strategic View of SHRP 2 Reliability Research Products

Reliability research commissioned by the Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP 2) is developing new knowledge about travel time reliability and how to improve it. Perhaps more important, SHRP 2 is developing new tools for highway agencies so they can proactively improve travel time reliability. These tools will help highway agencies: organize to better address travel time reliability; collect the right data and use new methods and tools to understand and improve travel time reliability; understand driver behavior that causes nonrecurring congestion and travel time reliability problems; communicate reliability-focused traveler information to motorists and other highway system users; directly address travel time reliability in transportation planning, capital programming, roadway design, and project delivery; and discover new ideas and innovations that will improve travel time reliability. The program includes 20 projects that support these goals and is funded at $20 million over 7 years.
