Beginning in 2019, the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requested that TRB be directly involved in managing evaluations of selected projects undertaken by the agency.
The TRB Cooperative Research Program's CRP Special Release 2: Evaluation of the Exploratory Advanced Research Program presents an evaluation of the program, which works on a range of topics, including human-automation interaction, safety improvements through advanced data analysis, innovative materials for highway pavements and structures, methods to improve transportation system resilience, and technologies for alternative fuels development.
