The Volpe Center-managed FHWA Research and Technology (R&T) Evaluation Program provides insight into how research goes from paper to roadway—from early research stages, to implementation, to measuring outcomes. By the end of fiscal year (FY) 2017, Volpe completed 12 evaluations. Five cross-cutting recommendations have emerged that can encourage research coordination and improve roadway safety and efficiency.

The United States Transportation Command seeks Volpe’s research and analytical expertise to help increase fuel cost savings and maximize fuel efficiency for handling the combined shipping needs for all branches of the U.S. military, approximately 300,000 containers per year.
Two recent benefit-cost analyses are helping form the foundation for smart decisions about proposed crosswalk infrastructure for people with disabilities and expanded use of excess flow valves, which halt the flow of gas if there is a pipe break or rupture.
Volpe developed a national model for evaluating fuel transport patterns, costs, and impacts to respond to military and commercial aviation sectors' need for reliable fuel supplies that can be distributed throughout supply chains in the continental United States and elsewhere.
