Page Title: Research Advisory Committees

         VTRC’s research advisory committees provide a professional forum for new research ideas, help set research priorities and, because of the transportation experts and officials who serve on them, offer a direct line to those who can best implement the research.

         Committee membership is normally limited to staff from federal, state and local government agencies and appropriate university faculty from throughout Virginia.

         The committees advise VTRC on the content and direction of its research program in the specific technical discipline within each panel’s scope.

         This includes providing technical advice and guidance during the course of VTRC's research projects as well as assistance and support with implementing that research.

         Current advisory committees include those overseeing VTRC’s work in asphalt, bridges, concrete, environmental issues, field operations, geotechnical engineering, knowledge management, pavements, systems operations, traffic & safety and transportation planning.
