No Boundaries Roadway Maintenance Practices

Through this pooled fund project, the Ohio Department of Transportation will work with other State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) to facilitate the implementation of promising non-snow and ice maintenance innovations and technologies. This project provides 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. This project is a continuation of the previous project initiated and led by the Missouri DOT TPF-5(239). In addition, it will capture and build on the momentum created by the Maintenance Peer Network. It is anticipated that this consortium will 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. In addition, the project will create a searchable database or warehouse where innovations and research done relating to highway maintenance can be found and showcased. State participation in this process will be through the pooled fund. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), industry and others will be invited to participate in the project discussions and activities. Workshops will continue to 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 Ohio DOT will serve as the lead state for the execution of the pooled fund project described in this proposal. The Ohio DOT will handle all administrative duties associated with the project.
