Research Projects

New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) has been performing transportation research in-house and through contracting resources since the early 1990's. The Department’s greatest assets, bridges and pavements, have been the topic of the majority of research projects. Recent efforts have resulted in a more diverse research program, spanning the array of transportation issues encountered here at NHDOT. The deliverables associated with NHDOT research can be accessed here.

NHDOT research project deliverables are available, including final reports, technical briefs, and posters, all providing valuable information on active and completed research. The projects are categorized by subject through the links below. Active projects are showcased and are also included under their subject area.

For more information on NHDOT transportation research and how to submit an idea that could turn an NHDOT problem into a solution, visit the Research Program page.
