WisDOT Research Program

The WisDOT Research Program manages $4 million annually in projects and activities that address all modes of transportation and impact all business areas in the department. Research examines aspects from planning and policy to delivery, maintenance and operations of transportation infrastructure.

Major program components include the Wisconsin Highway Research Program (WHRP), the Policy Research Program and the Transportation Pooled Fund (TPF) program. WisDOT also coordinates activities with the Transportation Research Board (TRB) and national cooperative research programs. Most WisDOT research activities utilize federal State Planning & Research (SPR) funds.

WisDOT Research Program reports, briefs, project information, RFPs and opportunities for involvement are available at
