The project's objective is to continue support of a working board and related committees for the Transportation Engineering and Road Research Alliance (TERRA). The key action will be the implementation and communication of road-related research. While the primary focus will be to expand pavement-related research opportunities, other compatible transportation engineering research will be pursued. The board enhances the partnership between all organizations and provides leadership organization for the industry and will facilitate a more comprehensive research program with increased strategic focus on using the MnROAD test facility and associated resources for pavement-related research. TERRA's main goal is to bring the public sector, private sector, and academic sector together to create more opportunities in the pavement research industry.
