Research Center


Research Program

Projects administered by the Research Center focus on research that can be applied to improve ADOT processes and products. Research projects address the full range of topics of interest to the department.

Projects are managed by Research Center staff and conducted in partnership with the public sector, private sector and university investigators under contract with ADOT.

Anyone may suggest an idea for a research project by developing a research problem statement and submitting it to at any time. A problem statement describes the existing issues to be addressed and the objectives that would be met by the suggested research. To ensure the responsiveness and applicability of the research program to ADOT's needs, a Research Advisory Committee provides oversight and direction to the research program.

Research results are documented in reports that must adhere to the ADOT Specifications for Preparing Research Reports. The reports are catalogued by the ADOT library and are available online. Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
