  • Abstract:
    The U.S. has built one of the world’s greatest transportation systems. With more than 600,000 bridges and 8.5 million lane miles, the system is large, complex, and aging.

    U.S. transportation agencies are challenged to make the system more efficient using existing infrastructure and funding resources, while improving travel times and safety.

    The goal of transportation research is to develop solutions to the Nation’s most pressing challenges and find transformative opportunities that will meet future needs. The responsibility of the federal government is to fund and conduct R&T activities of national interest that will lead to finding solutions to highway transportation issues and

    significantly advance technology innovation with a clear public benefit when private investment is neither present nor sufficient. FHWA coordinates with State departments of transportation (DOTs), and local agencies, industry, and academia because, in addition to conducting research, those agencies are responsible for deploying and implementing benefits outweighed the costs by as much as 63 to 1. Most importantly, Safety Edge can

    contribute to saving lives by reducing the potential for rollovers and other severe crashes.
