Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 54-17. State DOT Innovation Programs and Practices

The culture of innovation across state transportation agencies continues to grow and strengthen. Agencies are realigning their workforces to focus more directly on innovation as it relates to internal organizational excellence and external program and project development and delivery, as both aspects highly complement each other. Unlike research activities, which have established programs and processes, innovation programs are relatively new. Consequently, transportation agencies are primarily learning from each other through informal information exchanges. A synthesis of current practice in this area is needed to assist DOTs in this exchange regarding implementation and growth of innovation programs. The objective of this synthesis is to document state DOT current innovation programs, practices, policies, tools, management techniques, and workflows.
