Performance-Based Highway Maintenance and Operations Management
The Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) has released “Performance-Based Highway Maintenance and Operations Management.” The report provides a nationwide synthesis of the current practice of using performance-based highway maintenance and operations management at state departments of transportation (DOTs). Four case studies provide guidance for other state DOTs interested in applying performance-based management practices. Two case studies focus on the processes and procedures required to build and maintain a performance-based approach, and two other case studies examine the application of the approach to management and operations program management.
