Infrastructure Durability and Resiliency

Aims to transform American infrastructure, increase the life span and resiliency of transportation assets, and enable transportation infrastructure to be prepared for, adapt to, and rapidly recover from natural or manmade disruptions. Included are better ways to design, build, and maintain all modes of transportation infrastructure; robust pavements research, including new and innovative construction materials and intelligent construction methods; and new ways to enhance environmental stewardship by recycling.

Aims to address the impacts and potential benefits of technological innovation, including connected and automated vehicles, the electrification of vehicles on transportation infrastructure, and the use of technology to enhance construction project delivery. The consortium also will investigate the use of machine learning, artificial intelligence, unmanned aerial vehicles, and more to enhance proactive infrastructure management.


Aims to improve decision-making for financial resource allocation, including equity and social justice considerations, improved economic analysis for transportation improvements, innovative transportation finance methods, environmental stewardship, policy pertaining to enhanced project delivery methods, innovative construction methods, and other infrastructure-related policy issues. With the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act’s (IIJA’s) historic investment in American infrastructure, good policy enabling fully informed decisions has never been more important.
