  • Abstract:
    Transportation research projects are aimed at fostering innovation in different areas, such as

    safety, cost savings, quality, efficiency, project delivery, and policy. Transportation agencies and

    most notably State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs) sponsor various transportation

    research projects to improve transportation system features, such as safety and cost effectiveness.

    Determining the value of transportation research projects is one of the most important tasks

    towards improving various features of transportation systems, such as safety, quality, and cost

    effectiveness. However, for many State DOTs, the true impact of transportation research projects

    on the transportation systems is generally unclear. This is due to the lack of comprehensive and

    implementable quantitative and qualitative methods for determining the value of transportation

    research projects. These evaluation methods should go beyond considering the value of research

    projects in terms of operational costs saving and include value of the research on various impact

    areas, such as congestion reduction, and accident and fatalities prevention. There is a need for

    research that identifies the best practices in using proper methods and measures for

    demonstrating the true value of research projects in terms of various transportation system

    features, such as safety, quality, and cost effectiveness. The application of these methods and

    measures requires the identification and collection of relevant data on the benefits resulting from

    the implementation of research project findings and recommendations. Therefore, there is a need

    for a synthesis that identifies the best practices for determining value of research results. This

    synthesis presents the aggregation and summarization of what the State DOTs have done for

    quantifying the value of research.
