This video describes the FHWA Office of International Programs' International Technology Scanning Program. The scanning program was initiated in 1990 through a Congressional mandate. The National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' (AASHTO) Special Committee on International Activity are partners in the effort. The scanning program looks for advances in technology, management practices, and research that can be cost-effectively adapted to US federal, state and local highway programs. The video details some of the techniques and practices that have been observed and reported on by the scanning program and subsequently implemented in the US, including: stone matrix asphalt (SMA); composites used to repair and retrofit bridges and other structures; traffic calming techniques and bicycle and pedestrian oriented designs; innovative contracting; replacement of galvanized steel slab tendon conduits with polyethylene on bridges; and, the use of ITS technologies to transmit real-time data on roadway conditions from snow removal equipment in the field back to transportation management centers and dispatchers.
