Doing More with Less: Maintenance-Oriented Strategies for Transportation Improvements

DATE: Friday, April 12, 2024
TIME: 12:00 – 1:00 PM EDT
FORMAT: VIRTUAL Zoom webinar

DESCRIPTION: The issue of maintenance—and notably, deferred maintenance—stands as a pivotal challenge confronting public agencies who are looking to modernize their infrastructure. These agencies often do not have a complete picture of their maintenance liabilities and typically lack comprehensive inventories of their assets. Yet, even when such inventories exist, there is frequently a gap in understanding the full value of these assets, especially when it comes to identifying which ones are underutilized and possess untapped potential. This webinar will discuss maintenance-oriented strategies public agencies can utilize to tackle deferred maintenance and maximize value from their transportation infrastructure portfolios.
