University Research Center, Phase 1
The Arizona Department of Transportation Research Center has become separated from its connections with the three in-state universities. In an effort to re-establish a productive relationship with the universities, a survey of sate transportation departments and university research centers was conducted i an attempt to determine what organizational structures are currently used and which would best serve Arizona's needs. The diversity of models used indicates that there may bee no one best way to conduct transportation research. therefore, the "best" model is the one which is developed by the entire local transportation community to fit its needs and which is adaptable over time.
