TRAC investigators conduct research in the areas of bridges, construction management, environment, ferry systems, freeway and arterial management, freight travel, geotechnical engineering, highway design, intelligent transportation systems, multimodal travel, pavements, technology transfer, traffic engineering, transportation planning, and vehicle design and operation, among others.

Nationally, TRAC has prepared proposals for and conducted research with the USDOT, the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Transit Administration, the National Cooperative Highway Research Program, the National Science Foundation, the National Highway Institute, the National Traffic Safety Administration, the Transportation Research Board IDEA program, the Strategic Highway Research Program, and the US Forest Service.

Within Washington state, we have worked with the Puget Sound Regional Council, the Washington State Energy Office, the Washington State Patrol, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, the King County Department of Transportation (Metro), Snohomish County Public Works, and the City of Seattle.

TRAC has received private support and cooperation from numerous consultants, including Chaparral Systems Corp., ERES Consultants, Urban Systems, Inc., Cambridge Systematics, and PACCAR and has also worked with a number of public agencies from outside of Washington state.

TRAC’s Biennial Report describes our most recent two years of research. You can request a printed copy of the report from the TRAC Office.
