PDF Version (1.09 MB)

This report describes a proposed set of data elements for inclusion in MMIRE—the Model Minimum Inventory of Roadway Elements. As has been noted throughout the report, this listing is viewed as a first step in a process to establish MMIRE and to begin the voluntary adoption by State and local DOTs. It is expected that additional review of, and possible modification to, this initial listing will follow. As noted above, the adoption of MMIRE by a State or local agency will not be easy—it will require commitment, adequate resources, and a staging plan. However, the results of this effort will be the foundation for one of the most important tasks conducted by any transportation agency—the development and use of a safety management system that reduces the crashes, deaths, and injuries involving the agency’s primary customer, the road user.
