Asset Management Program
The Boone County Highway Department’s Transportation Asset Management program provides a decision-making framework that is guided by performance goals. The program draws from economics as well as engineering and considers a broad range of factors that includes physical as well as human resources to operate, maintain, and improve transportation assets, such as roads and bridges. Transportation Asset Management is a business process that focuses upon engineering and economic analysis based upon quality information to identify a structured sequence of infrastructure maintenance, preservation, repair, rehabilitation, and replacement that will achieve and sustain the lifecycle of transportation assets at minimum practicable cost. Asset Management is about good management, effective leadership, and achieving the right organizational culture. Both the bridge and pavement asset management plans are updated regularly based on regular inspections and condition ratings.
