Abstract:

Maintaining, preserving, and enhancing the functionality of state and local roadways of our transportation system is important because it maintains capacity and efficiency, reduces potential for congestion, maintains safety, reduces the need for further (or unplanned) improvements, and protects the value of our investments in both transportation infrastructure and adjacent land development. It is important that functionality be considered in all stages of a highway's life cycle. This presentation covers promoting the importance of highway functionality and reviewing functionality in the highway life cycle. The presentation also provides how-to materials on preserving, maintaining, and enhance functionality. Finally, the presentation promotes coordination between the Texas Department of Transportation and its partners and solicits feedback.
