No Boundaries Summertime Maintenance Practices

Through this pooled fund project, the Missouri Department of Transportation plans to work with other State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) to establish a program in order to facilitate the implementation of promising innovations and technologies. This project will provide a forum for State DOTs to share their maintenance innovations with each other, support technology transfer activities and develop marketing and deployment plans for the implementation of selected innovations. Resources will be provided for implementing the innovations that includes travel, training and other technology transfer activities. It is anticipated that this consortium would become the national forum for state involvement in the technical exchange needed for collaboration and new initiatives, and be a forum for advancing the application and benefit of research technologies. State participation in this process will be through the pooled fund. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), industry and others will be invited to participate in the project discussions and activities. Workshops could be provided for the states participating in the pooled fund project. This project will help DOTs to save time and money by not investing in the same research that has already been performed by other State DOTs. Hence rather than having each DOT identify and implement research separately, DOTs can work collectively through this pooled fund project. The Missouri DOT will serve as the lead state for the execution of the pooled fund project described in this proposal. The Missouri DOT will handle all administrative duties associated with the project.
