Its goals include:

  • Identifying research needs related to transportation structures and the factors that influence their safety, performance, service life and sustainability through planning, design, construction, inspection, maintenance, preservation, rehabilitation and decommissioning activities
  • Developing and promoting transportation structures research and guidance
