Many decisions made during the preconstruction process, such as planning, right of way acquisition and design details, may adversely affect future maintenance costs and effectiveness. This report was developed for use as a set of guidelines to promote adequate consideration of maintenance requirements during all phases of highway preconstruction activities. Roadway and bridge design features that affect the normal maintainability of a highway facility are identified. Each design feature is treated as a separate category, and recommendations for minimizing maintenance problems are offered. Suggested methods for improving recognition of maintenance problems during preconstruction procedures are also discussed. (FHWA)
