Research and Issues in Maintenance and Preservation of Infrastructure

Presented to Pooled Fund

April 19, 2012

Lisa Loyo

Manager, Information Services

Transportation Research Board


What are we discussing?

  • • Infrastructure (pavement and bridges) preservation and maintenance

  • How do we decide when to preserve or maintain a road or a bridge or build something new?

    • Not the same as historic preservation

    • Similar questions and decisions as for equipment management – when do you replace versus repair?

  • Other definitions or comments ?


  • What questions on this topic have you received?


Perspective

  • Consider the entire state – projects often are distributed by region rather than based on ROI

  • Look at infrastructure as an entire network, and not individual projects

  • Comments?


  • If you have received a reference question on this topic, how did you respond?


People and Organizations

  • Colleagues at other DOTs

  • Use RIP (rip.trb.org) to locate organizations and people doing similar work

  • Staff who maintain fleet equipment
