The University of Pittsburgh is joined by three public, three private and one association organizations that comprise the IRISE consortium partnership. The three public members are Allegheny County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. The three private sector members are: CDR Maguire Corporation, Golden Triangle Construction and Michael Baker International. The association member is the Constructors Association of Western Pennsylvania. The Federal Highway Administration also serves as an ex-officio member. Other organizations are welcome to join.
Each organization is represented on the IRISE Steering Committee. The Steering Committee representatives shown contribute towards defining each year’s research program and appoint representatives from their organizations to individual project panels to help define each project’s detailed scope, to keep the research relevant as it proceeds, and to build interest in implementing the innovations that result.
Multiple representatives from all of the member organizations provide invaluable contributions in many ways. They help identify relevant highway infrastructure durability and sustainability research issues and actively participate on the project panels. All of their efforts are very much appreciated.
