Improving Performance, Knowledge, and Methods to Provide Quality Service and ProductsThe objectives of this study were to educate staff about the impact of research in Alaska, enhance communication and coordination amongst stakeholders, and formulate a long-term research and implementation research plan for pavement and materials. Education begins with an overview of pavement design, construction and maintenance in Alaska since the 1900’s through a series of webinars. Interviews with five state materials engineers were used to explore best practices. Finally, a workshop focused on developing a coordinated research program and improve implementation activities. The workshop provided a series of recommendations to The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities which will enhance the value of the departments research program.
