New What's New  Fall2018

    • The Bureau of Policy and Planning’s Research Section is excited to introduce our new “CTDOT Research Bulletin.” The Bulletin is published annually as a quick way to disseminate information of the work being done in Research and encourage transportation research on all levels. Please enjoy the bulletin and feel free to provide feedback and ideas for future editions.
    • Take advantage of the AASHTO TC3 trainings made available by the Research Section!
      TC3 on-line training courses are available in the categories of construction, materials, maintenance, traffic and safety, pavement preservation and employee development. CTDOT personnel can access the training 24/7, start and stop sessions to fit their schedules, as well as print personalized certificates. The registration process is easy to follow.
    • The U.S. Department of Transportation unveiled the Research, Development and Technology Strategic Plan for FY2017-2021. The Strategic Plan strongly emphasizes U.S. DOT efforts to promote the deployment and adoption of research results by integrating technology transfer throughout the Research and Development process.  It describes how the Department’s Technology Transfer Program and each Operating Administration’s Technology Deployment strategies address the FAST Act requirement to specify how research findings will be used to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and safety of transportation systems. Cross-modal research and collaborative initiatives in the areas such as alternative fuels, climate change, new emerging technologies etc. are also highlighted.
