  maintenance of an integrated national

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 ??
