DEVELOPMENT OF CONDITION SURVEYS AND INVENTORIES FOR GUIDE RAIL AND DRAINAGE FACILITIES
In 1983, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation implemented a Systematic Technique to Analyze and Manage Pennsylvania Pavements (STAMPP), our first complete pavement management system. With STAMPP as the foundation, the Department has embarked on the development of a total Roadway Management Information System (RMIS), which to become functional required addition of guide rail and drainage conditions. A special task group, comprised of District, County and Central Office personnel developed the techniques by which to inventory and collect the condition data for guide rail and drainage facilities, assigned treatment strategies and related costs to deficient conditions, and proposed methods by which to implement identified survey results. The result is a more complete roadway management system, which allows Department management to more effectively manage our approximately 43,000 miles of highway pavements, shoulders and appurtenances, based on needs.
