The Projects Team is also converting the data, previously provided on microfiche and CD by FHWA, to digital format.

Various other projects are also being undertaken, including those by FHWA Special Interest Groups and Affiliated Societies.

We always need Volunteers and with many of our projects you can work from home,  and don’t always need a computer.  The Projects Team also welcomes suggestions for future projects.
