A Methodology for Integrating Roadway Safety Hardware Asset Management into the Overall Highway Asset Management Program

The focus of this research is to advance transportation asset management and optimization analysis of roadway safety hardware for improved highway safety performance. The research will concentrate on three technical aspects of roadway safety hardware management systems as well as pavement, bridge, maintenance and safety management systems that also handle roadway safety hardware assets: 1. inventory process, data collection, performance trend analyses and needs assessment; 2 life-cycle cost analyses and 3. system integration to achieve the most globally optimal, cost effective resource allocation decisions.
