Historical Information

Established in 1920 as the National Advisory Board on Highway Research, the organization provided a mechanism for the exchange of information and research results about highway technology. Renamed the Highway Research Board (HRB) in 1925, the organization accomplished its mission through standing committees, publications, and an annual meeting. Information exchange remained its sole mission until the 1950s, when it began to undertake management of ad hoc research projects. In 1974 the Highway Research Board became the Transportation Research Board.
