This report is a study of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Risk Assessment program and a search for ways to improve the system. Research was done via literature search of relevant documents and surveys of PennDOT District personnel and selected other states with histories of asset management policies. Input was also received from the Bridge Quality Assurance Division who manages the system. The result is a list of quick strike, median range and long range recommendations for the system. In addition, a study was performed and a software tool provided to evaluate changes to the weights applied to the factors used to calculate the risk scores.
