About the research

Abstract:

One challenge in keeping local infrastructure in a state of good repair is the limited availabilityof funding to help preserve and improve existing facilities. The successful implementation of asset management can help local governments to save money in the long run by utilizing a “mix of fixes” approach that emphasizes maintenance over rehabilitation. The goal of this project is to assist the city of Grandview, Missouri, with the implementation of asset management and in the process to develop a system for local governments in Missouri to implement asset management. The project is primarily focused on pavement management and includes initial inventory and data analysis to help the City of Grandview to best allocate its resources to maintain its roads. However, the framework that is developed will be applicable to other assets such as signs and pavement markings.
