  • Transportation Asset Management Transportation agencies are responsible for maintaining our roads, bridges, tunnels, and other infrastructure assets. These agencies rely on tax dollars for funding transportation systems. Meanwhile, new construction and repair costs are increasing for our overburdened transportation system. Transportation agencies must use their tax dollars wisely to optimize service and minimize risk. Asset management is a strategic and systematic approach for managing transportation assets over their whole life. Asset management helps ensure that available funding addresses our highest priorities.
