Developing a Framework for Establishing a Risk-Based Geotechnical Asset Management Program in Illinois

Geotechnical assets serve as a foundation for various components of the transportation system such as pavements and bridges. This project will establish a framework for a risk-based geotechnical asset management program to be implemented by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Researchers will establish procedures for data collection, perform condition assessments as well as create a database platform and data management process for geotechnical assets. Actively managing geotechnical assets will reduce the risk of failures and their resulting impact on the performance of the transportation system, helping to avoid disruptions in service as well as costly and time-consuming repairs.
