Considerations in Managing Pavements and Bridges in Fair Condition | Research ReportAsset Management, Bridge, Pavement
The report, created by the Transportation Asset Management Expert Task Group (TAM ETG), addresses the concerns of agencies facing a rise in the proportion of their pavement and bridge networks deteriorating to Fair condition. The TAM ETG members identified the factors contributing to this situation and initiated discussions emphasizing the importance of managing this increasing percentage of their networks based on TAM principles. The findings from these discussions form the basis of this document, which aims to: provide State and local transportation agencies with an understanding of why prioritizing investments in assets in Fair condition is more effective than heavily investing in those in Poor condition, and encourage the adoption of more proactive lifecycle planning in investment decisions.
The percentage of pavements and bridges in Fair condition represents a significant portion of the nation’s inventory. This document summarizes points raised during virtual meetings conducted by the FHWA’s Transportation Asset Management Expert Task Group (TAM ETG) during calendar year 2021. These discussions addressed the importance of managing pavement and bridge assets in Fair condition as a cost-effective strategy for system preservation. This summary highlights several examples provided by the TAM ETG to illustrate the importance of managing assets in Fair condition and suggests the consideration of performance to preserve or extend asset life in accordance with sound lifecycle planning practices to mitigate risk.

New Mexico RIP - Interim Briefing | Presentation
NMDOT seeks to develop a Resilience Improvement Plan to meet the requirements and cost share incentive of the PROTECT Formula Program. In alignment with the PROTECT program guidance and in support of the New Mexico Governor’s climate action initiative, NMDOT will build on the Resiliency 1.0 Study to integrate new data sources into the GIS-based analysis framework, apply likelihood and probability analysis, integrate guidance from FHWA Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Framework, and identify key priorities for each NMDOT district.
This PowerPoint summarizes the approach and methodology being used to develop the NM RIP.
Presented on 2/28 at an internal briefing.
