AASHTO Subcommittee on Maintenance Where does the National Safety Rest Area Conference Fit? AASHTO American Association of Highway Transportation Officials Non-Profit, nonpartisan association representing highway transportation departments in 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Represents all five transportation modes: air, highways, public transportation, rail and water. Goal is to foster the development, operation and maintenance of an integrated national transportation system. AASHTO (Cont.) Much of AASHTO’s work is accomplished through committees comprised of member dot personnel. The Committee are: Standing Committee on Administration Standing Committee on Aviation Standing Committee on the Environment Standing Committee on Highway Traffic Safety Standing Committee on Highways Standing Committee on Planning Standing Committee on Public Transportation Standing Committee on Quality Standing Committee on Research Standing Committee on Rail Transportation Standing Committee on Water Transportation Standing Committee on Highways Subcommittee on Bridges and Structures Subcommittee on Construction Subcommittee on Design Subcommittee on Highway Transport Subcommittee on Maintenance Subcommittee on Materials Subcommittee on Right of Way and Utilities Subcommittee on Systems Operation and Management Subcommittee on Traffic Engineering NTPEP Oversight Committee Value Engineering Task Force Subcommittee on Maintenance http://maintenance.transportation.org/ Task Forces Focus Groups Pavements Research Roadside & Equipment Environment Management Systems Traffic Services & Workforce Safety Development Bridge Customer Satisfaction Snow & Ice Contract Maintenance Roadsides & Environment Task Force Statement of Direction The Roadside Task Force will champion roadside maintenance issues for AASHTO members. The Task Force shall: Provide a forum for the exchange of information among its members; Increase awareness of the public expectations for aesthetics, safety and environmental protection of the roadside including context sensitive design; Survey best practices for raising public awareness about maintenance constraints to meeting their expectations; Serve as the focal point for issues related to roadside facilities and services; Promote a dialogue of cooperation between maintenance and design areas in order to construct roadsides that are easier to maintain thus providing a higher level of service to the traveling public; Promote cooperate and communicate with TRB Committees, AASHTO Subcommittees, and other related organizations; Develop Research Program Statements and synthesis and submit to AASHTO Maintenance Subcommittee; and Serve as resource and subcommittee liaison on issues involving the joint use of highway rights-of-way (i.e., weight stations, accomodations of utilities, community service groups, and other agencies). How NSRAC Fits In Both AASHTO and NSRAC are concerned with similar issues. The maintenance community needs to be included and participate in rest area design and operation issues. Seems to fit within the AASHTO SCOM in the Task Force on Roadside & Environment. Summary AASHTO needs to participate in the NSRAC and NSRAC needs to participate in AASHTO Subcommittee on Maintenance meets annually - Would like a rep. from the NSRAC to participate SCOM will continue to support the NSRAC Questions/Discussion ??
