About the Report 750 Series
In 2008, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Standing Committee on Research (SCOR) established the forward-looking NCHRP Project 20-83 research series. Published as NCHRP Report 750: Strategic Issues Facing Transportation in Volumes 1-6, the series examines global and domestic long-range, strategic issues and their implications for state departments of transportation (DOTs).
The NCHRP Report 750 Foresight Series reports are a resource for transportation decision-makers and practitioners interested in the future of the transportation systems they oversee. In addition to the reports themselves, other resources have been developed to facilitate communication and discussion of these research results.
Each volume explores fields as varied as freight movement, climate change, technology, sustainability, energy, and socio-demographics and explains how events and trends may shape the transportation system of 30-50 years in the future. Together, the reports demonstrate the importance of foresight in navigating an uncertain --- and in some cases --- a rapidly changing future and they give state DOTs and other transportation agencies the tools to develop a better understanding of the opportunities and the challenges the future may present.
