Abstract: Our national commitment to financing the rebuilding of America's highway intrastructure represents a very expensive, long term investment. The challenge facing highway engineers today is to develop innovative methods to design, construct and maintain the highway infrastructure in the most economical manner possible. The papers included in this book focus on this challenge and the programs available to the highway community to bring innovation to bear on the infrastructure crisis through efficient use of research resources. Examples of successful research and development programs are presented. Future research needs are discussed.
