Pilot Test the Collaborative Decision-Making Framework with Three DOTS, Including a Self-Assessment Method. Project C18(C)

To address the challenges of moving people and goods efficiently and safely on the nation's highways, Congress has created the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2). SHRP 2 is a targeted, short-term research program carried out through competitively awarded contracts to qualified researchers in the academic, private, and public sectors. SHRP 2 addresses four strategic focus areas: the role of human behavior in highway safety (Safety); rapid highway renewal (Renewal); improved travel time reliability through congestion reduction (Reliability); and transportation planning that better integrates community, economic, and environmental considerations into new highway capacity (Capacity). The objectives of this project are to (1) test the content and functionality of the Transportation for Communities--Advancing Projects through Partnerships (TCAPP); (2) apply the collaborative decision-making principles and practices and assess how well they work; (3) test any of the attributes of projects C01, C02, C03, C08, and C08 alone or in combinations; and (4) provide an independent evaluation.
