Strategies for Improving the Project Agreement Process between Highway Agencies and Railroads TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-RRR Strategies for Improving the Project Agreement Process between Highway Agencies and Railroads examines the process by which highway agencies and railroads develop agreements for highway projects.

SHRP 2 was created by Congress to address the challenges of moving people and goods efficiently and safely on the Nation's highways. This short-term research program addresses four strategic focus areas: Safety – The role of human behavior in highway safety.

Renewal – More efficient highway project delivery. The Strategic Highway Research Program: An Investment That Has Paid Off by Michael Halladay Inthe U.S. Congress authorized the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) - a five-year, applied research initiative - to develop and evaluate techniques and technologies to combat the deteriorating conditions of the nation's highways and to improve.

The second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) is at the forefront of transportation innovation–helping the Nation’s transportation community improve safety, enhance productivity, boost efficiency, and increase reliability by introducing solutions that improve the country's highway network.

An implementation strategy is outlined in TRB Special Report Implementing the Results of the Second Strategic Highway Research Program: Saving Lives, Reducing Congestion, Improving Quality of Life. Research was focused in four areas. The nation’s highways are primarily financed by the Highway Trust Fund, which gets most of its money from a gas tax of cents per gallon.

The tax has remained unchanged since and isn. New success stories and resources are becoming available as many projects from the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) reach completion. These new resources (and more) are available at: TRB Special ReportImplementing the Results of the Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2): Saving Lives, Reducing Congestion, Improving Quality of Life 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. The goals of the implementation process are to: Ensure that the U.S. highway community is fully aware of SHRP products.

Develop and implement short- and long-range marketing strategies for SHRP products, exploiting a variety of existing and. when implementing strategy. The approaches developed try to cope with challenges that exist in the organizational setting and may exist in the beginning of strategy implementation or in its course.

Only organizations that will overcome these challenges will be able to implement their strategy effectively which shows their relevance for this paper.

The research described herein was supported by the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP). SHRP is a unit of the National Research Council that was authorized by section of the Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act of We wish to thank the state highway maintenance personnel who took the time to complete.

The second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) is a national partnership of the Federal Highway Administration, AASHTO, and the Transportation Research Board.

Although the SHRP2 program is officially winding down, FHWA program offices have integrated many of its outcomes into their current national programs. The final product of this research program is a new system referred to as “Superpave”, which stands for SUperior PERforming Asphalt PAVEments.

Superpave, in its final form consists of three basic components: An asphalt binder specification. This is. IMPROVING READING COMPREHENSION THROUGH HIGHER-ORDER THINKING SKILLS Brigitte A. McKown, B.S. Cynthia L. Barnett, B.S.

TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-RRR Strategies for Implementing Performance Specifications: Guide for Executives and Project Managers is designed to provide a broad overview of the benefits and challenges associated with implementing performance specifications.

TRB Special ReportImplementing the Results of the Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2): Saving Lives, Reducing Congestion, Improving Quality of Life 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. The Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP2) is at the forefront of transportation innovation—helping the Nation's transportation community improve safety, enhance productivity, boost efficiency and increase reliability by introducing solutions that improve the country's highway network.

The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) RT&E Program strives to generate new solutions, build more effective partnerships, and provide better information and tools for decision making, which will enable the Nation to enhance and make the best investments in the U.S.

transportation system. F-SHRP would comprise four research program areas: accelerating the renewal of America's highways; making a significant improvement in highway safety; providing a highway system with reliable travel times; and providing highway capacity in support of the nation's economic, environmental, and social goals.
