Summer Maintenance Operations Reporting: A Survey of State and National Practice

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is interested in learning about the types of documents that other state departments of transportation (DOTs) prepare to report on summer maintenance operations activities. These documents provide an opportunity to review quantitative and qualitative information about an agency’s summer maintenance performance. To gather information that can assist MnDOT in preparing its own report summarizing summer maintenance operations, CTC & Associates conducted a literature review to examine reporting of this type completed by other state DOTs and recommendations for completing it; a survey of state DOTs supplemented results of the literature review. Topics addressed in the literature review and survey included identifying the maintenance activities or performance measures to be reported, practices to gather data, data management, publication type and format, and the target audience for these publications. Information for this Transportation Research Synthesis was gathered in three topic areas: Survey of State Practice; Reporting on Transportation Maintenance Performance; and Related Resources. One significant finding stands out among the survey results and online and print publications examined for this project: None of the documents or online resources discovered during the research for this report is specific to summer maintenance operations. While much of the state DOT reporting examined in this report does address summer maintenance operations, the reporting typically includes both summer and winter maintenance activities in a single report. More generally, reports of transportation agency performance include activities beyond those related to maintenance.
