November 17 Program & Happy Hour: Innovative Asset Management 

WTS MN invites you to learn about MnDOT’s innovative approach to asset management!

This program will highlight the work MnDOT has done as one of three pilot states in the nation to comply with MAP-21’s Transportation Asset Management Plan requirement and share how the agency has used that process to manage its assets in a more responsible and complete way. MnDOT manages the state highway network – 12,000 miles of roadways – that have an estimated replacement value of nearly $30 billion for just the pavements alone. New lessons on how to better manage the system will be shared, including data collection methodologies, inspection cycles, life cycle cost analyses, and how to manage an aging system with increased demands.

Kirby Becker, Asset Management Planning Director, and Trisha Stefanski, Metro District Infrastructure Asset Management Engineer, will bring the latest in how MnDOT addresses pavement, bridges, hydraulics (highway culverts and deep storm water tunnels), overhead sign structures, and tower lighting on the MnDOT highway system. And, there will be a preview of the next assets to undergo a strategic asset management planning approach – noise walls, traffic signals, lighting, Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) infrastructure, and pedestrian infrastructure.

The program will be followed by a happy hour at Red Cow in St Paul’s Cathedral Hill (393 Selby Avenue). Even if you are unable to make it to the session, please join us for the happy hour!
