Asset Management

Maintenance of the existing transportation system is a regional priority. The region’s local roads are a considerable asset and are a vital piece of the regional transportation network. Reliable data on these local assets is essential for evaluating overall long term regional transportation needs.  In addition, maintaining good data such as an inventory of roadway features, characteristics and conditions can provide decision-makers with information that is necessary for funding, business planning, project design and maintenance programs.  In 2016, SPC, in conjunction with PennDOT and local planning partners, continued a multi-year effort to inventory locally-owned roads and bridges throughout the 10-county region.

Since the commencement of the Local Asset Management program in 2011, SPC has inventoried over 3,100 locally owned bridges throughout the region.  Phase II of the bridge portion is determining where structures have been replaced since the original inventory in 2011.  This part of the process includes contacting the municipalities through the counties to review the data that we have collected and it includes the updating of the hydrology and street centerline datasets used to create the original inventory. 

The other portion of the Local Asset Management program is the local roadway inventory.  SPC has collected roadway attributes on over 7,000 miles of local roads in the region.  The data collection has been completed for Lawrence, Butler, Armstrong, Indiana, Washington, Westmoreland, Fayette and Greene counties.  This data is now going through a quality control and will be updated accordingly.  In 2017, the data collection effort will continue with the remaining counties of Allegheny, Westmoreland, and Beaver.
