NCDOT is in the process of rolling out its highway performance based measures. The agency has begun an update of the Long Range Statewide Transportation Plan and is continuing the development of its management systems. The next major undertaking will be seeking stakeholder support on the State's commitment to performance based measures and LOS. The bottom line, says Love, is providing the biggest return for each dollar spent on transportation assets, a goal that is becoming reality as NCDOT expands its TAM program.
