NJDOT announces evaluation of transportation infrastructure

Statewide effort will lead to better asset management

 

(Trenton) New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Commissioner Jack Lettiere today announced the kick-off of a statewide effort to evaluate the physical condition of New Jersey's transportation infrastructure.   This effort will lead to a better understanding of the state's resources, assets, and challenges, and will assist public agencies and authorities with their capital investment planning.

 

Statewide asset management is a theme that has been strongly encouraged by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT).   It emphasizes principles that focus primarily on infrastructure preservation, but apply to all areas of the capital investment decision-making process, including: defining policy objectives to planning, programming, budgeting, program and project development and design, operations, construction, maintenance, and system monitoring.

 

The effort will include public agencies and authorities receiving federal funding, including NJ TRANSIT, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, and the South Jersey Transportation Authority.   Work will begin after Labor Day and focus on bridges, roads, rail assets, pavement, signs, and signals.

 

"We have a responsibility to understand the physical condition of our transportation infrastructure," said NJDOT Commissioner Jack Lettiere.   "This effort will lead to better asset management for New Jersey."
