The Connection ……

A strategic approach to managing transportation infrastructure

--- AASHTO Asset Management Guide


Why asset management for roadway safety is important l.jpg

Why Asset Management for Roadway Safety is important

  • Safety is a top priority

  • Goal is to reduce highway fatalities and injuries

  • Important to construct, maintain, and operate safer transportation systems

  • Need to have data and facts of existing conditions and performance

  • Need to identify and set priorities

  • Roadway safety expenditures compete for limited DOT resources against other assets


Slide20 l.jpg

Why

  • Leverage resources.

  • Additional funding sources.

  • Powerful funding request tool.

  • Make safety efforts more effective and efficient.

  • Make the task easier.

  • Support legislative initiatives.

  • Reduce fatalities and injuries.


Slide21 l.jpg

It’s about Decision making...

...At every level

...Across disciplines

...With performance measures

...And feedback at all levels


Slide22 l.jpg

Asset Management....

  • Expenditure of funds:

    • based on trade-off analysis, alternatives considered across functions and asset classes

    • driven by customer requirements

    • address a multitude of considerations

    • incorporate extended time horizons

    • systematic and data driven


Slide23 l.jpg

In 2000, FHWA with AASHTO undertook a study to establish a baseline of current roadway safety hardware management practices, needs, and interest in enhancements.

Signs

Signals

Supporting Structures

Guardrails / Attenuators

Lighting
