Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Planning. Task 67. Best Practices in Using Programmatic Investment Strategies in Statewide Transportation Plans

As State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) continue to grapple with budget shortfalls and the need to address competing issues such as maintenance/preservation of the system versus capacity expansion, more effort is being directed towards the creation of programmatic investment strategies, which in level of detail are between a policy plan and a list of projects. A number of states now employ a long term programmatic investment strategies as a tool to guide STIP decisions and create a greater link between Department goals and policies and future project selection. The objective of this project is to identify the various methods by which such strategies are assembled, i.e, prioritizing needs to revenue, asset and resource allocation, and subsequent decisions on investment level per infrastructure area. Further research is required to examine if a standard set of best practice is available and to ascertain how such strategies have been implemented, both at the planning and programming level and through the project development and operational processes within each respective DOT.
