Comprehensive Planning Study of Maintenance Facilities for the Connecticut Department of Transportation

This study was prompted by a recommendation of the Commission to Study the Management of State Government, also known as the Thomas Commission. The recommendation stated that savings might be realized through the consolidation of the Connecticut Department of Transportation's thirteen equipment repair facilities. In this study, an optimization model is developed to represent the problem of reconfiguring the repair system to minimize total costs while maintaining the existing level of service. Based on runs of the optimization model, two recommended options are developed. One option closes three repair facilities for an estimated savings of $5.01 million, and the other option closes two facilities for a savings of $3.12 million. An advantage of the eleven facility option is that it does not require any new construction prior to implementation. This report presents details of the recommended options, and completely describes the analysis and assumptions upon which the recommendations are based.
