The Federal Investment in Highway Research, 2006 2009:
Strengths and Weaknesses - Special Report 295

This new report from the Transportation Research Board (TRB) assesses how well the investments that Congress made in research programs through the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users comply with the principles articulated in the preface to the act’s research title. The report contains findings and recommendations about specific research programs and calls for reliance on competition and merit review in awarding funds through the Federal Highway Administration and in selecting institutions for the University Transportation Centers program of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on November 4, 2008 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web sites of both the National Academies Press and the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies.
