The Connection ……

A strategic approach to managing transportation infrastructure

--- AASHTO Asset Management Guide

why asset management for roadway safety is important
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
Why
  • Leverage resources.
  • Additional funding sources.
  • Powerful funding request tool.
  • Make safety efforts more effective and efficient.
  • Make the task easier.
  • Support legislative initiatives.

It’s about Decision making...

...At every level

...Across disciplines

...With performance measures

...And feedback at all levels

slide22

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

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