The objective of this project is to develop and support a working Board and related committees for the Transportation Engineering Road Research Alliance. The main goal of this alliance is to bring the public sector, private sector, and scholars together to create more opportunities in the pavement research industry. Creation of the Board will enhance the partnership between all organizations and provide a leadership organization for the industry. The Board will facilitate a more comprehensive research program with increased strategic focus on using the MnROAD test facility and associated resources for pavement-related research. While the primary focus will be to expand pavement-related research opportunities, other compatible research such as vehicle technologies and driver communications will be pursued in order to diversify funding.
