Transportation research Circular Number E-C093: 6th National Conference on Transportation Asset Management
This circular summarizes the content of the conference’s sessions and presentations. The conference was held in conjunction with the 1st National Conference on Roadway Pavement Preservation and provided an opportunity for asset management, maintenance, and other transportation practitioners to share information, acquire new skills, and network with other professionals in this field. The opening sessions were jointly sponsored by both conferences, featuring presentations highlighting the links between pavement preservation and asset management. These sessions cited pavement preservation programs as an excellent example of applied asset management concepts and illustrated how such programs make cost-effective use of available funds with treatments that provide an improved level of service, fewer disruptions to the traveling public, and improved safety characteristics. The remainder of the 2-day conference featured presentations and facilitated discussions that supported the conference theme: Making Asset Management Work in Your Organization.
