Asset Management

Home > Departments > Asset Management

Highway infrastructure is not limited to pavement and bridges. It also includes other physical components, or assets, such as drainage structures, traffic signals, signs, sidewalks, curbs and guardrails. However, a transportation system is more than the sum of its parts.

MassDOT builds and maintains these assets to provide a reliable and modern transportation system, so that our customers are able to travel the Commonwealth of Massachusetts safely and efficiently. MassDOT's goal is to maximize the useful life of each asset through careful preservation, rehabilitation, and maintenance.

This process is called Transportation Asset Management. For each component within the transportation system's infrastructure, data is collected about its location, condition, and history. This detailed information guides us in managing the asset's current and future performance and in investing our resources wisely.
