SPR-4229: Cost Effectiveness of Constructing Minimal Shelter to Store INDOT Equipment (Weather Protection)

Currently vehicles used by INDOT are more likely to be subject to maintenance and repair rather than replacement. The extent of wear and tear on the vehicles may be impacted by the lack of covered storage. There are many different levels of covered storage – each of which has different associated costs. The goal is to evaluate INDOT’s expected return on the investment to create covered areas for equipment (vehicles, other assets) to help reduce equipment wear, speed of startup of equipment, and perhaps better efficiency.
