The Impact of Deferred Maintenance in Minnesota

In this research, we will use a combination of multiple methods; case studies, statistical models, and surveys to analyze patterns of maintenance expenditures across different localities (cities and counties) in Minnesota, explore how fiscal conditions affect maintenance expenditures, and to examine the negative impact of deferred maintenance on Minnesota's local road system. This research will generate information that city and county engineers can use in discussions with elected officials to maintain an appropriate and consistent level of funding for maintenance.
