NCHRP 25-25/Task 51 [Final]

Asset Management of Environmental Mitigation Features
[ NCHRP 25-25 (Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on the Environment) ]

  Project Data
Funds: $80,000
Research Agency: ICF International
Principal Investigator: Marie Venner
Effective Date: 5/29/2008
Completion Date: 5/28/2009
Comments: The project has been completed and the final report submitted to AASHTO.

State departments of transportation have constructed many environmental mitigation projects in conjunction with transportation projects that have been implemented pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act. In order for the environmental mitigation projects to continue to provide the long term functionality that was intended when they were first constructed, they must be properly maintained, and when necessary rehabilitated or reconstructed. Several states are beginning to use an asset management approach for inventorying the condition of environmental mitigation features and making decisions on maintenance and capital improvement needs for these features. This research proposes steps that owners of these features should undertake in developing asset management systems for the various types of environmental features.
