In June 2016, The FHWA and AASHTO announced the
42 transportation organizations that are recipients of the Round 7 Implementation Assistance Program (IAP) under the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2). Thirteen SHRP2 Solutions from the Renewal, Capacity, and Reliability focus areas are included in Round 7 and, with these selections, work will begin on 79 projects in 37 States.
The IAP was launched in 2013 and has provided more than $130 million in financial support and technical assistance to transportation agencies across the country. More than 430 SHRP2 projects are underway across all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
While Round 7 was the final IAP offering, there may be limited future opportunities for assistance on a case-by-case basis, as needs arise and funding permits. However, all SHRP2 products are available for use at any time regardless of the availability of financial or technical assistance.
Other opportunities are offered to transportation agencies through a variety of technology and innovation deployment programs, including Every Day Counts, AASHTO’s Innovation Initiative, the Accelerated Innovation Deployment Demonstration, and the State Transportation Innovation Councils Incentive Program.
If you would like additional information or have questions about SHRP2 or the programs mentioned above, please contact Carin Michel, FHWA SHRP2 Implementation Manager at
