This paper provides information for quantitative evaluation of transportation technology, technology development, and transportation R&D and construction engineering policy agenda. Technology classification structure and key words were established and survey was performed to identify key words of technology for transportation. Then, competitiveness of patents and journal articles is evaluated for Korea, USA, Japan, Germany, France, and England. As a result, USA is the most competitive country for all technology categories based on patents and journal articles. Korea is grouped in upper-middle class for overall transportation technology level. However, there are some variances among the level of technologies. The results of this research can be utilized to establish a road map for transportation R&D and plans.
