Research Implementation Examples
New Hampshire DOT
The New Hampshire DOT (NHDOT) was interested in improving data and information systems to enable better alignment between bridge preservation decision-making approaches with those used for bridge rehabilitation and replacement.
This assessment was conducted in anticipation of advancements in data and modeling detail and better integration of bridge asset management and bridge design systems and models. At the time of the assessment, a new bridge management system was being implemented, presenting a unique opportunity to advance data and information system practices.
New Mexico DOT
New Mexico DOT (NMDOT) had recently implemented a new data-driven methodology to prioritize proposed capital projects.
They wanted to use the assessment to identify data and information system improvements to advance and sustain District implementation of the new approach and prioritization outcomes.
Examine VDOT’s maintenance management system to identify how current functionality can be expanded to support broader asset management of roadside assets.
Structured as a group assessment approach of targeted assessment elements to produce an action plan that would support future, expanded use of the system to new asset programs and use cases.
Virginia DOT (VDOT) has a long standing and high functioning Pavement Management program. This program is organized around a well-established pavement management system (PMS) and pavement maintenance scheduling system (PMSS). These systems are used by Central Office and District staff to forecast pavement conditions, allocate resources, and plan targeted preventative, corrective, and restorative maintenance projects.
Although VDOT staff were confident in their high-performing program, they were motivated to identify if further advancement would be possible through data and/or system improvements.
