Asset Management in Oregon: Roadway Safety Data and Analysis
With almost 20,000 lane miles on the Oregon highway system, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is responsible for managing and maintaining its roadway assets. Managed assets include barriers, traffic signals, lighting, pavement markings, and signs. ODOT has developed an inventory of its assets and evaluates asset condition in order to efficiently manage maintenance efforts. Over several years, ODOT implemented two new programs to manage their roadway assets, TransInfo and the Features, Attributes, and Conditions – Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (FACS-STIP) Tool. TransInfo is a statewide asset management system. It provides ODOT asset management staff with the most up-to-date statistics on assets and other features on the State highway system. The FACS-STIP Tool is a web-based program that provides information on an asset’s location, attributes, and condition to all users with internet access.
