  • Ohio DOT TAMP

    champaign illinois pavement management system data collection

    Transportation Asset Management Plan Development for the Ohio Department of Transportation

     

    The Client

    Ohio Department of Transportation (DOT)

     

    The Goal

    The Ohio DOT is responsible for managing a transportation network with a capital program in excess of $2 billion. In response to 2012's Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) and to better manage its sizable obligations, the Department sought to develop a TAMP. To accomplish this goal, the Ohio DOT selected APTech to develop a long-term, risk-based TAMP.

     

    Our Work

    • Developed a customized TAMP that describes the process used to manage the state-maintained pavements, bridges, and culverts and establishes an investment strategy that makes the best use of available funding.
    • Helped identify improvements to existing business processes that would lead to more effective long-term investment decisions for the Ohio DOT.
    • Facilitated workshops with the Ohio DOT personnel to support workforce development efforts needed to implement the new business processes.

     

    The Outcome

    This TAMP is used in systematic and strategic investment decisions that use funds more effectively and support the Ohio DOT's mission to: 1) take care of what they have; 2) make the system work better; 3) improve safety; and 4) enhance capacity.

  • NCHRP Gap Analysis Tool

    NCHRP 08-90 Transportation Asset Management Gap Analysis Tool

     

    The use of asset management principles in state highway agencies (SHAs) has become increasingly important as those agencies respond to increasing demands on the highway system and demands for improved transparency and accountability in agency decisions. Asset management provides a framework for using performance data to make sound investment decisions that are aligned with the agency’s strategic objectives. To help identify and prioritize changes that are needed to support asset management in a transportation agency, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) published the Transportation Asset Management Guide - A Focus on Implementation. The Guide describes the use of a gap analysis as an objective and structured process for evaluating current and desired asset management practices and to identify priorities for actions that are needed to achieve agency goals. When the Guide was developed, a prototype of a tool was developed to support the use of a gap analysis by SHAs. However, the original tool was developed based on experience in New Zealand rather than the U.S. and was not easily modifiable. To remedy these difficulties, the National Cooperative Research Program (NCHRP) selected us to develop a new gap analysis tool that is more intuitive, well described, user-friendly, and applicable for transportation practitioners and decision-makers in the United States.

     

    To determine the capabilities needed in the improved tool, we are conducting a literature and process review. The data from these activities enables us to develop helpful guidelines for conducting a gap analysis and an intuitive and user-friendly gap analysis spreadsheet tool that is relevant to transportation asset management in the United States. The gap analysis spreadsheet tool will be made available to SHAs through AASHTO and outreach activities such as webinars and workshops. National Highway Institute (NHI) courses will be used to promote the tool’s use as well.

  • Mississippi Quality Management Plan

    Mississippi DOT Pavement Management Manual and Data Quality Plan

     

    The client

    Mississippi Department of Transportation (DOT)

     

    The client's goal

    The Mississippi DOT selected APTech to update the existing pavement management process documentation, develop a Quality Management Plan (QMP) for pavement management data collection activities, and provide recommendations for improving quality checks on pavement condition data collected by vendors.

     

    Our work

    • Reviewed the Department's existing pavement management policies and interviewing staff members.
    • Conducted a thorough literature review of QMPs from other agencies to develop a comprehensive Pavement Management Manual.
    • Developed a QMP to guide the collection of pavement condition data using both automated and manual techniques and to satisfy the requirements under the MAP-21 Act for data quality.
    • Developed a Technical Brief to summarize the content found in the Pavement Management Manual and the QMP as part of the Department's outreach opportunities.
