How does a problem statement become a research project?
TxDOT reviews submitted problem statements before approving them for research:
- Problem statements are reviewed and prioritized with project recommendations for each functional area.
- Top recommended problem statements across all five functional areas are converted into project statements.
- Project statements are submitted to the Federal Highway Administration and the TxDOT Executive Review Board for final approval.
- The Request for Proposal for selected project statements are announced.
Functional area committees
The Functional Area Committees consist of subject matter experts from TxDOT districts, divisions, and universities. The five committees are:
- Construction, Maintenance, and Materials.
- Planning and Environmental.
- Safety and Operations.
- Structures and Hydraulics.
- Strategy and Innovation.
