Welcome to the R&I/RAC Website

​This website is intended as a resource fo​r the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Special Committee on Research and Innovation (R&I) and its Research Advisory Committee (RAC).

The site has two main purposes:

  • For new RAC and R&I members, the site serves as an orientation tool, providing background information and quickly showing new members how to become full participants in committee activities.
  • For all members, the site is a reference tool that documents operational procedures, membership rosters, coming events, links to other sites, and current committee activities.
