stakeholders. More important, successful
communication methods were identified
to assist in framing each county's system preservation needs, and educational
materials were developed to convey the
financial gap to the public.
Based on the pilot county work, eight specific preservation strategies were identified
as potential methods to improve system
preservation efforts and/or minimize the
financial gaps discovered. They are:
* Interjurisdictional Transfer Analysis.
This strategy will have a direct impact
on reducing system size and preservation costs. The result will be a better
performing county highway system that
reduces preservation costs and maximizes efficient use of tax dollars.
* Tiered Classification of County
Highway by Different Maintenance
Standards and Schedules. A preservation program would dedicate maintenance funds to high-performing
highways and fewer resources to lower
volume routes.
* Reverted Surfaces. This strategy
would allow county engineers the
ability to revert surfaces to gravel for
suitable highways, which will reduce
preservation costs.
* Transportation Plans. A county transportation plan will identify long-term
transportation needs and their relationship to other planning factors,
while respecting community values
and assets.
* Performance Standards and Measures.
A performance-based approach improves
the accountability of local transportation investments, assess risks related to
different performance levels, monitors
progress and increases transparency.
* Project Prioritization. Project prioritization methodology should allow for
alternative scenario planning, is understandable and transparent, and improves
preservation programming decisions.
* New Revenue Sources. New revenue
sources will allow counties to expand
and accelerate preservation initiatives,
which will directly address the preservation needs, and advance a county's
expanded preservation program.
* New Maintenance Techniques. New
methods will provide better roadway
surfaces, longer service life and higher
traffic volume thresholds, resulting in

more stable road-maintenance costs.
Cost reduction of lifecycle extension
strategies which save money, or extend
surface life, can directly benefit preservation needs, and minimize any identified financial gap.
LESSONS LEARNED AND OUTCOMES
The overall study promoted a collaborative
approach among county engineers, elected
leaders, and stakeholders. The research
through the pilot counties also provided
a new lens into thinking about system

preservation strategies. More importantly,
the study's outcomes provided local governments with new tools to assist them
in these challenging times. Pilot county
engineers, concluded:
* Preservation needs are nearly universal among Minnesota counties, and if
not addressed, the problems will only
get worse
* A wide variety of beneficial preservation strategies are available and effective; these range from system-size
adjustments, to planning/programming,

Hot-in-Place Recycling is not only a very green process
that reduces the carbon footprint by 28% versus mill &
overlay, it also reduces congestion and user delays with
far less trucking required.
