An Evaluation of Idaho Transportation Department Needs for Maintenance Management and Pavement Management Software Tools

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) is facing a critical point in the maintenance and management of its highway system. The number of deficient miles is increasing, paving costs are rising exponentially, and revenue is not keeping pace with the increased costs of construction. The situation is further complicated by the fact that the Department’s existing maintenance management system is no longer used due to incompatibility with the Department’s recently acquired financial management system and the pavement management system is not meeting the Districts’ needs. To help address this situation, ITD initiated this research project (RP 183) to conduct an evaluation of the Department’s current maintenance management and pavement management needs as the first step towards acquiring new software packages. The selected research team reviewed existing documentation and interviewed approximately 40 ITD personnel to identify critical needs. Strategies were developed for addressing the needs and recommendations for enhancements were provided. Detailed findings are presented in the final report.
