by David K. Phillips, Federal Highway Administration, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering 21st Century Highways


The national highway community is looking into the 21st Century to anticipate the needs that will be placed on highways over the next 3 decades. The view suggests that new technology will be needed to support a system of highways that are durable and safe and that will meet traffic capacity demands. Many of the answers will have to come from the highway research community. To serve as the leader in the national effort, the Federal Highway Administration will require an expanded research, development, and technology transfer program; a stable budget; and increased public/public and public/private interaction.
