Join the Asset Management Book Club
Take a journey through the many facets of transportation asset management with the new online Asset Management Book Club.
Sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), this series of free Webinars will review the content of the AASHTO Transportation Asset Management Guide: A Focus on Implementation and share experiences from practitioners. Released in 2011, the Guide provides strategies transportation agencies can use to both preserve their highway assets and realize the greatest value from their resource allocations.
With an asset management approach, decisions on what would be the most effective mix of maintaining, repairing, renewing, or replacing infrastructure components are based on accurate data, economic analysis, and sound engineering. Decisions are also supported by performance measures and performance–based goals.
Webinars will be held from 2–3:30 p.m. (eastern daylight time) on the following dates:
Advance registration is required for each individual Webinar. To register, visit www.fhwa.dot.gov/asset/bookclub.cfm.
