17 Objective 1 - Promote uniformity of regional guidelines for pavement preservation treatments.  Gather existing state specs?  Target specific treatments?  Develop “strawman” guidelines?

18 Objective 2 - Promote the use of improved materials, equipment, and processes among the member agencies.  Survey on who is doing what treatments?  Survey on what states are tracking performance/developi ng LCCA models?

19 Objective 3 - Implement a comprehensive information sharing process  Annual Meeting?  TSP2 website/library?  Scheduled Webinars with polling/voting pods?

20 Objective 4 - Establish a coordinated regional research effort.  Identify Research Partners (colleges/universities in each state) with an interest in pavement preservation?  Website?  Pavement Preservation Roadmap topics and prioritization?

21 Objective 5 - Advocate policies that integrate system preservation activities  AASHTO SCoM passed a resolution recommending that AASHTO promote that a portion of all highway funding at all levels of government be dedicated to preservation.  Assure that PMS systems include Pavement Preservation activities?  Assure Asset Management Systems include preservation activities?

22 Objective 6 - Publicize pavement preservation findings at the national level.  TSP2/NCPP Newsletters/Articles  Pavement Preservation Journal Articles?  TRB Papers? NCHRP Studies?

23 Objective 7 - Advocate common terminology and definitions.  Use FHWA Definitions Memo?  What else?

24 Current Activities (starting slowly)  Two operating task forces Promoting Pavement PreservationPromoting Pavement Preservation Preservation Treatment Specifications and GuidelinesPreservation Treatment Specifications and Guidelines  Annual Meeting coordination  Web sites
