The Research and Implementation Office in Dallas assists local agencies and organizations link research findings to implementation practices through the transfer of technology. TTI has operated an office in Dallas to serve that rapidly growing area of the state since 1968, when the Federal Highway Administration selected TTI to develop one of the first integrated freeway and surface street control and management systems in the United States.

The Research and Implementation Office in Arlington provides ongoing research and technical support to the Dallas, Fort Worth, El Paso and Lubbock TxDOT Districts, DART and other sponsors. This office works in coordination with the TTI Dallas office to support the TxDOT Dallas District.
