National Road Research Alliance - NRRA (Phase-II)

Primary objectives of the National Road Research Alliance (NRRA Phase-II) are: (1) Implementation and technology transfer of NRRA Phase-I research efforts and other common interests; (2) Continue to fund and support research and implementation efforts of common interest; (3) Continue the communication with both its government agencies along with its associate members (industry, associations, consultants, academia); (4) Continued utilization of MNROAD to conduct structured construction, field testing and evaluation of pavement materials, equipment and methods under real-world conditions; (5) Establish industry standards and develop performance measure for improving pavement performance; (6) Develop and/or revise specifications and recommendations; (7) Studying and promoting innovative techniques and technologies that will save agencies money, improve safety and increase efficiency; (8) Supporting technology transfer by developing practical field guides, best practices, and training curriculum to promote the results of research projects; (9) Conduct cost-benefit analysis to ensure that new technologies, materials or methods contribute to operational efficiencies; (10) Support the exchange of information and ideas through collaborative research efforts that provide opportunities for public agencies to share experiences. (11) Identify and prioritize common road related research needs to address regional and national issues that are built on existing efforts such as FHWA’s PCC and HMA Roadmaps as well as the Foundation for Pavement Preservation Roadmap; (12) Fund high priority, readily implementable research projects though research contracts and university partnerships; (13) Leverage knowledge, skills, and resources from participating partners to advances pavement research and implementation efforts while developing the workforce of the future. Support technology transfer that highlights the implementation of research results and the associated benefits.
