A Synthesis Study on Collecting, Managing, and Sharing Road Construction Asset Data

The construction phase is the best time for collecting as-built data for roadside assets. Underground drainage and utilities are only accessible during construction. Collecting data for guardrails, crash cushions, signal and signage, and pavement after construction has not kept pace with technology. This project assesses INDOT's data needs and recommends best practices in collecting, managing, and sharing road construction asset data. Main deliveries include (1) a framework of data needs, data collection opportunities during construction, and data collection and management strategies; and (2) an implementation guideline that specifies the best timing, method, and responsible party for data collection.
