    We need a fix for the Highway Trust Fund, and with that will come a discussion on policy priorities in the next federal transportation bill. How can we make sure we are maximizing our limited dollars when it comes to maintaining and modernizing our roads, bridges, and transit stations?Join ASCE staff and Eno Center for Transportation staff for the latest installment of the Key Contact Briefing Conference Call series!

    ASCE partnered with the Eno Center in September to produce "Maximizing the Value of Investments Using Life Cycle Cost Analysis," a report that reviews the extent to which life cycle costs are considered in planning transportation projects in the United States.  When making funding decisions under constrained budgets, it is tempting to place high importance on the up-front costs and pay little attention to costs in the future. How can we encourage policymakers and transportation agencies to think more long-term about operations and maintenance costs earlier in the planning process? We’ll go over the results of a revealing survey with ASCE members and government decision-makers, as well as the policy recommendations to greater incentivize the use of life cycle cost analysis in transportation planning.
