DEVELOPMENT OF PARAMETERS FOR MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT FOR CITIES AND COUNTIES IN MINNESOTA

With the many miles of surfaced roads that are now in existence it is necessary to be able to judge which ones should be maintained and what maintenance procedures are most appropriate. For all except the very smallest of jurisdictions, some type of a maintenance management system should be used to establish priorities. The Minnesota Department of Transportation has been sponsoring a Research Implementation Project for presenting and developing techniques that city and county engineers can use to help judge when maintenance is required and what procedure is most appropriate. The techniques make it possible to systematically quantify conditions which have been used to judge the need for maintenance in the past. The evaluations are based on four parameters, discussed in the paper, that include a surface condition rating system, rideability, traffic and strength.
