Transportation Pooled Fund
The Transportation Pooled Fund (TPF) Program enables State departments of transportation (DOT), and other public and private entities, to combine resources to address transportation-related challenges. By combining efforts and resources on high-priority highway research topics, our Nation’s transportation agencies can advance solutions that stimulate economic growth, advance equity, and improve climate resilience. Studies must be initiated and led by either a state DOT or the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). To find study partners, the lead agency posts its proposed topic on the TPF Program website. In addition to State DOTs and FHWA, other Federal agencies, regional and local agencies, academic institutions, professional associations, and private industry can join the study as partners by pledging funds or other resources.
Some of the key TPF Studies on LTPP include:TPF-5(332) Performing Forensic Evaluations of LTPP Remaining Sections Before They Leave Service
