Research and Issues in Maintenance and Preservation of Infrastructure Presented to Pooled Fund April 19, 2012 Lisa Loyo Manager, Information Services Transportation Research Board
What are we discussing? Infrastructure (pavement and bridges) preservation and maintenance How do we decide when to preserve or maintain a road or a bridge or build something new? o Not the same as historic preservation o Similar questions and decisions as for equipment management – when do you replace versus repair? Other definitions or comments ?
Perspective Consider the entire state – projects often are distributed by region rather than based on ROI Look at infrastructure as an entire network, and not individual projects Comments?
If you have received a reference question on this topic, how did you respond?
