5.2.4 American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO)
AASHTO is a non-profit, non-partisan association representing highway and transportation departments in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. It represents all five transportation modes: air, highways, public transportation, rail, and water. Its primary goal is to foster the development, operation, and maintenance of an integrated national transportation system.
AASHTO provides a range of policy development, standards setting, and technical activities services, with contributions by department of transportation personnel who work through the AASHTO committee structure. Its on-line bookstore offers a wide body of knowledge for managing road networks.
