Capital Preventative Maintenance (Transportation Pooled Fund 5(036))

This project will document budgeting and programming processes and strategies, contractual processes and relationships with the private sector, use and structure of life cycle analysis, relevant outreach and educational activities as they impact capital preventative maintenance. The proposed research will build on the initial base work set down in the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) defining and discussing the continuU111 between capital, preventative and routine maintenance of assets. The focus will include capital maintenance, docU111enting analytic methods, budgeting strategies, legal and institutional issues, and a brief focus on strategies as formulated in design-build-maintain-warranty systems. Complimenting this will be a summary and detailed review of at least three cold weather states' strategies including strategies relevant to budgeting, programming, and contractual processes within a set of institutional constraints, the use of life cycle analysis, and any relevant educational and outreach activities offered by these DOTs.
