A database documenting research on coatings and other topics by nine federal transportation agencies is now searchable, officials have announced.

The U.S. Department of Transportation Research Hub Website is a searchable database of the latest agency-sponsored research, development and technology projects

The database was released by the U.S. DOT Office of the Assistant Secretary for Research and Technology.

Searchable Agencies

The database acts as a central location for information on projects funded by the DOT operating administrations, provides access to the department's research portfolio at the project level, and provides links to research reports and other products.
