IDOT Research Needs

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) meet each year in the summer to identify research needs that will address important transportation issues. IDOT’s needs will be updated annually on August 15th. We encourage you to review these needs (after August 15) and to submit research ideas to meet these needs.

Submitting Research Ideas

The ICT Executive Committee met in February 5, 2014, to select new research projects. Between August 15 and October 1, 2014, ICT will collect research ideas for consideration by IDOT’s TAGs and the ICT Executive Committee at its Spring 2015 meeting. Please review the latest IDOT research needs and consider submitting your ideas to meet these needs. Research Ideas are due by October 1 each year.
