Detailed Planning for Research on Providing a Highway System with Reliable Travel Times ("Reliability")

<p>The objective of this project was to develop a specific research plan for the Future Strategic Highway Research Program (F-SHRP) Reliability Topic: Providing a Highway System with Reliable Travel Times. The scope of this effort, as well as the overall F-SHRP, is described in <em>TRB Special Report 260, Strategic Highway Research: Saving Lives, Reducing Congestion, Improving Quality of Life.</em> To accomplish the project objective, the following tasks are envisioned: (1) Characterize the factors that reduce the reliability of travel times and estimate the impact of each. (2) Develop a draft research plan for review by the oversight panel. (3) Conduct a stakeholder workshop to gather additional feedback on the draft research plan. (4) Revised the plan based on the panel comments and workshop results. Meet with the panel to review the revised plan. (5) Submit the draft final research plan for panel review. (6) Revise the research plan and submit the final version. <br /></p>
