Appendix C. Summary of AASHTO Survey Results

This graph is a map of the United States with color-coding to designate States that did and did not participate in the AASHTO survey. All States participated except Alabama, the District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont, and Wisconsin.

Figure 10. Map. Geographic map showing States that responded to AASHTO survey.

This is a horizontal stacked bar graph. Each stacked bar is divided into two sections: the number of “yes” responses and the number of “no” responses. On the x-axis is the number of States, and on the y-axis is a list of inventory items. The graph indicates that of the 39 responses received, 24 States inventory signs, 27 States inventory signals, 15 States inventory lighting, 19 States inventory supports, 19 States inventory guardrails, 21 States inventory pavement markings, and 17 States inventory detectors.

Figure 12. Graph. AASHTO survey results to question #2: Percentage of assets in inventory.

This is a horizontal stacked bar graph. The x-axis indicates the number of States and the y-axis depicts the types of inventory items that were specified when States were asked, if they inventory assets of a type, does that inventory system also track location. Each stacked bar shows the number of States that said their inventory system tracks all locations for assets of a type, the number of States that said their system tracks some locations for assets of a type, and the number of States whose inventory does not track location for assets of a type. 15 States track all sign locations, 7 States track some sign locations, and 3 States track none. 24 States track all signal locations, 2 States track some signal locations. 9 States track all lighting locations, 3 States track some lighting locations, and 2 States track none. 9 States track all support locations, 9 States track some support locations, and 1 State tracks none. 13 States track all guardrail locations, 2 States track some guardrail locations, and 4 track none. 9 States track all pavement marking locations, 19 track some pavement marking locations, and 2 track none. 12 States track all detector locations, 3 States track some detector locations, and 2 track none.

Figure 16. Graph. AASHTO survey results to question #5 (part 2): Method used for inventory updates.

This is a horizontal stacked bar graph. The x-axis indicates number of States and the y-axis depicts the types of inventory items that were specified when States were asked to describe if their funding was allocated on inventory for assets of a type. Each stacked bar shows the number of States that responded “yes” and the number of States that responded “no” by asset type. The graph indicates that of the 39 States that responded to the survey, 10 States said funding was allocated on inventory for signs, 11 said funding was allocated on inventory for signals, 7 said funding was allocated on inventory for lighting, 6 said funding was allocated on inventory for supports, 7 said funding was allocated on inventory for guardrails, 9 said funding was allocated on inventory for pavement markings, and 7 said funding was allocated on inventory for detectors.

This is a horizontal stacked bar graph. The x-axis indicates number of States and the y-axis depicts the types of inventory items that were specified when States were asked to indicate if their budget contained a line item for maintenance. Each stacked bar shows the number of States that responded “yes” and the number of States that responded “no” by asset type. The graph indicates that of the 39 States that responded to the survey, 23 States said there is a budget line item for signs maintenance, 21 said there is a budget line item for signals maintenance, 17 said there is a budget line item for lighting maintenance, 8 said there is a budget line item for supports maintenance, 20 said there is a budget line item for guardrails maintenance, 28 said there is a budget line item for pavement markings maintenance, and 11 said there is a budget line item for detectors maintenance.

This is a horizontal stacked bar graph. The x-axis indicates the number of States and the y-axis depicts the types of inventory items that were specified when States were asked whether their funding was allocated based on condition for assets of a type. Each stacked bar shows the number of States that responded “yes” and the number of States that responded “no” by asset type. The graph indicates that of the 39 States that responded to the survey, 13 States said funding is allocated based on signs condition, 15 said funding is allocated based on signals condition, 10 said funding is allocated based on lighting condition, 11 said funding is allocated based on supports condition, 11 said funding is allocated based on guardrails condition, 11 said funding is allocated based on pavement markings condition, and 8 said funding is allocated based on detectors condition.
