Regional Operations Forums

Regional Operations Forums (ROFs), developed by the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) and the Transportation Research Board (TRB), provide practitioners with new and innovative approaches for managing and operating the highway system, drawing from the cutting edge work being carried out under the SHRP2 program and other national programs.

Description
As states confront transportation problems with tighter fiscal budgets, the necessity for better managing and operating the transportation system becomes extremely critical. The ROFs provide practitioners with new and innovative approaches for managing and operating the highway system, drawing from the cutting edge work being carried out under the SHRP2 program and other national programs.  Participation in a (ROF) provides the strategies, technologies and practices needed to advance the paradigm shift towards Advancing Systems Operations, Management, and Reliability.  Learn More
