Integrating Asset Valuation and Management Techniques in Long-Range Transportation Plans for Urban Areas in Mississippi

The objectives of this contract are to advance the practice and application of transportation planning among State, regional and local transportation planning agencies in response to the significant changes in the planning process and to identify new tools, techniques, and approaches that respond to national transportation planning priorities. It is relatively well-known that transportation agencies tend to maintain better information on pavements and bridges than on other transportation assets. The majority of transportation planning in the study area deals with those two traditionally highlighted asset classes. Within the propose time-frame of sixteen months, this research will undertake the following two related tasks: preparing an inventory of transportation assets for the seven county region covered by the Central Mississippi Planning and Development District (CMPDD), and an analysis of alternative scenarios based on integrated asset valuation and management techniques into the related goals on long-range transportation plans such as economic development, accessibility and mobility, and preservation.
