Research and Technology Transfer

Research activities address innovation and knowledge needs in many areas related to transportation. These areas include policy, management, safety, environment, planning, engineering, construction and operations.

MassDOT’s Transportation Research and Technology Transfer Section (Research Section) is located in the Office of Transportation Planning (OTP) and oversees MassDOT’s transportation research program. It contracts with state universities and other research services providers to conduct research in all areas of transportation. The Research Section also participates in pooled fund studies with other state transportation agencies and contributes to national and regional studies on transportation issues of interest and benefit to the Commonwealth. MassDOT’s transportation research program contributes to increasing the safety, reliability, capacity and efficiency of Massachusetts’ transportation system.
