Transportation Planning and Asset Management

A new brochure available from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Transportation Planning and Asset Management (Publication No. FHWA-IF-06-046), is designed to assist metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), transportation departments, and others in balancing funding realities with mobility needs; public expectations; and community, legislative, and environmental considerations. The brochure outlines how transportation asset management provides a valuable tool to maximize system performance, improve customer satisfaction, and minimize life-cycle costs. It also looks at the role of an MPO in asset management, how to get started in implementing an asset management program, and the benefits of applying asset management during the planning process.

The brochure is available online at www.fhwa.dot.gov/infrastructure/asstmgmt/tpamb.cfm. For printed copies, contact Steve Gaj in FHWA's Office of Asset Management, 202-366-1336 (email: stephen.gaj@fhwa.dot.gov), or Robert Ritter in FHWA's Office of Planning, 202-493-2139 (email: robert.ritter@fhwa.dot.gov).
