EXAMINATION OF EXISTING HIGHWAY MAINTENANCE GARAGE LOCATIONS IN TAMA AND BLAIRSTOWN STUDY AREA. FINAL REPORT

An optimum allocation model has been utilized to examine the existing allocation of highway segments to maintenance garages in the Tama and Blairstown study area. The model has also been used to evaluate the financial impact of closing the highway maintenance garages at Tama and Blairstown and building a new garage at the junction of U.S. 30 and Iowa 21. The examination of the study area shows that only 13 of 91 highway segments were reallocated under optimum procedures at an annual operational savings of approximately $13,200. The study concludes there would be an annual operational savings of approximately $48,200 if the garages at Tama and Blairstown were closed and a new garage were built at the junction of U.S. 30 and Iowa 21.
