Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 42-06. Performance-based Highway Maintenance and Operations Management

There is an increasing focus on performance outcomes and management accountability in highway system management by state transportation agencies. This interest has driven substantial, relatively rapid advances in maintenance and operations (M&O) management practices and systems, characterized by what are commonly referred to as levels of service (LOS). These management advances are not documented in a single, up-to-date source. Documentation is important since practices vary. For example, state DOTs have taken different approaches to defining LOS (e.g., pass-fail scoring vs. A-through-F-type grading); the performance measures and threshold values that underlie LOS definitions vary, notwithstanding national efforts to achieve greater uniformity; and methods to communicate the consequences of different target LOS likewise vary.
