Implementing the Results of the Second Strategic Highway Research Program:
Saving Lives, Reducing Congestion, Improving Quality of Life

Requested by Congress in P.L. 109-59, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), this new report explores promising results expected from the SHRP 2 research and provides recommendations on how they could be most effectively implemented. The committee that developed the report believes that the widespread implementation of products developed by SHRP 2 is critical in order to address the nation’s roadway safety, renewal, reliability, and capacity issues.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 27, 2009 and can be found, in its entirety, on both the Web site of the Transportation Research Board and the National Academies Press.
