Research In Progress

CSUTC focuses on researching safe, reliable solutions that increase mobility of people and goods and strengthen California’s economy. Broadly, SB 1 identified a number of high priority needs for California: congestion relief (including traffic management systems), trade corridor enhancements, improved transit and rail, pedestrian and cyclist safety projects, as well as maintenance and rehabilitation for California’s road and bridge infrastructure. CSUTC research is designed to align with these priorities and ensure improved mobility for Californians. A current list of ongoing research projects is listed below.
