Roadway infrastructure is the backbone of America’s transportation system, and maintaining it in a state of good repair is essential for all modes of transportation. Roads and bridges accommodate not only passenger and freight vehicles, they also accommodate buses, bicyclists and pedestrians. The transportation network supports the economy and directly affects the competitiveness of the nation and our region.
Over the years, the United States has built one of the world’s most extensive transportation systems, representing trillions of dollars of public investment. A well executed asset management plan is necessary to successfully manage the assets this investment represents.
Historically, asset management has been a critical, but underrepresented and underfunded element of the transportation planning process. Asset management is based on a simple, but powerful premise that agencies should consider the full life-cycle cost of their funding decisions and manage their assets accordingly.
