Citation Excerpt: The conference agreement provides $14,000,000 for structures research. Within the funds provided for structures research, the conferees direct FHWA to provide $125,000 to support nondestructive structural evaluation technology at New Mexico State University's Bridge Research Center, $200,000 for West Virginia University Constructed Facilities Center for fire and blast resistant composite barriers research, and $150,000 for the University of Delaware's innovative bridge research program, $350,000 to the University of Maine to study the use of wood composite material to extend the life of ports, and $1,000,000 for the National Steel Bridge Alliance. The conferees strongly encourage FHWA to continue its research and deployment of lithium technologies to prevent and mitigate ASR since advances in these lithium technologies have the potential to help increase the durability of our transportation infrastructure.
