Center for Highway Pavement Preservation
The establishment of CHPP is consistent with the U.S. Secretary of Transportation’s strategic goal of “State of Good Repair”. The CHPP seeks to provide a new platform for accelerating innovation in highway pavement preservation. The national need to protect the massive national highway infrastructure investment is recognized by Congress.
A continuing challenge to meet future transportation needs is clearly human resources. Encouraging the best and brightest to pursue degrees in transportation-related engineering disciplines is a big priority of the Center. This task is focused on showcasing the challenges, opportunities, and most importantly, the rewards of pursuing a college degree in a transportation-related area.
