What are we discussing

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 ?
