Safety, Mobility, and Congestion

Asset Management

  • FHWA Case Study: Asset Management in Oregon (.pdf)
    The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) manages and maintains its roadway assets through Transinfo, its statewide asset management system, and the Features, Attributes, and Conditions – Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (FACS-STIP) tool. This case study examines Oregon's efforts as a good example of relationships between spatial data for asset management and for safety improvement, and also describes the benefits related to agency policy setting and data-driven decision making.

Research, Technical Reports, and Guides


  • Applying Archived Operation Data in Transportation Planning: A Primer (.pdf)
    This FHWA primer assists transportation planners in effectively using archived operations data for developing, analyzing, and evaluating transportation plans and programs, and identifies innovative applications for such data in planning. It also aims to help planners and their operations data partners, regardless of experience level, overcome the barriers to obtaining and using data.
  • Go Boston 2030 Vision and Action Plan (.pdf)
    The plan sets forth goals, targets, projects, and policies for expanding access, improving safety, and ensuring reliability through efficient transportation networks.
