SYSTEM PRESERVATION NEEDS

The most important system preservation expenditure categories and the approach used to estimate needs by the Maryland Department of Transportation are described in the paper. In Maryland, the largest system preservation needs are highway resurfacing and bridge rehabilitation. The largest nonhighway system preservation needs are for bus replacement, representing about 10% of all system preservation needs for all modes. This type of analysis can be useful to transportation agencies in justifying proposals for revenue increases and in establishing a realistic level of expenditures for system preservation improvements to avoid further deterioration of existing facilities.
