    Description

    An extensive U.S. research program to further develop wood utilization in transportation structures is currently in progress as a joint effort of the USDA Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory, and the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration. This research is funded primarily by U.S. legislation and involves cooperative research with universities, government agencies, and private industry. Within the program, research is divided into six areas: system development and design, lumber design properties, preservatives, alternate transportation system timber structures, inspection and rehabilitation, and technology and information transfer. This paper presents a brief summary of selected research program highlights within each of these areas and includes a listing of recent publications.
