Research Partners

Washington Transportation Center
In 1983, WSDOT, the University of Washington and the Washington State University formed a partnership that established the Washington Transportation Center (TRAC). TRAC provides a link among the government, university researchers, and the private sector. TRAC acts as a liaison, connecting those who need applied research at WSDOT with those best suited to conduct it at the universities. The WSDOT Research Director is the Executive Director of TRAC. Each university has a TRAC Director that works with the Executive Director.
