This report is the third in a series on Optimizing Maintenance Activities. These studies using Value Engineering Techniques are being sponsored by the Implementation Division and Conducted by teams of maintenance and operations engineers from several State highway agencies. The third study was conducted in Arizona, Idaho, Iowa, and West Virginia. The recommendations in the report have been limited to those which should be useful to all State and local maintenance organizations with maintenance responsibilities. If applicable, immediate savings can be obtained by adopting those recommendations concerning equipment modifications, use of alternate equipment, and changes in the type of material. Implementation of the recommendations in the four study States would result in a total estimated improved service value in excess of $1,000,000 annually. /FHWA/
