  • Abstract:
    Transportation agencies a re responsible for the operation and maintenance of hydraulic control structures including culverts, drop

    systems, and storm drains. It is difficult for transportation agencies to develop accurate and effective performance measures, budgets,

    and maintenance plans for culverts because there is a lack of information on the condition and even the location of many of the

    structures they manage. In this 2013 set of interviews and case studies, three States (Ohio, Oregon, and Vermont) and one county (Los

    Angeles) describe how the agencies are tackling these challenges and increasing the resilience of their culvert systems. Through the

    development of effective culvert management systems and policies, they are developing operational protocols and establishing capital

    improvement budgets that address risks associated with hydraulic control structure failures. Generally, the culvert management

    systems they have developed are available for other public agencies to use and adapt. The culvert management case studies herein

    illustrate a path for other departments of transportation and transportation agencies to manage assets more efficiently, reduce risk,

    and improve public safety.
