The AASHTO Board of Directors approved a reorganization of the AASHTO committee structure at its 2016 meeting in Boston.
The reorganization was developed over the last 18 months by the Comprehensive Committee Review Steering Committee, comprised of state DOT CEOs and senior DOT officials.
The approved structure is inclusive of all transportation modes and disciplines, addresses state-identified priorities and emerging issues, and is intended to be more efficient and nimble in its decision-making.
Work is underway to implement the approved committee structure and it is expected that the transition and re-alignment will be phased in over multiple years.
A new Strategic Management Committee within the Board will be established to guide the restructuring process. Vice President John Schroer will chair the SMC. Once the Strategic Management Committee is established, further guidance will be provided; until this time, please note the following:
