AASHTO and FHWA are hosting a Webinar (Session II) to provide scan team findings and recommendations from the NCHRP U.S. Domestic Scan Project 07-05 that was completed in June 2009. Scan 07-05 is a domestic scan focusing on practices among U.S. State transportation departments for identification, prioritization, and execution of programs for maintenance of highway bridges. State DOTs visited during the Scan include: California, Delaware, Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, and Washington. The Webinar will provide an overview of Scan results (recap from Session I), highlight sample practices from two to three of the Scan States (not covered in Session I), and continue to outline the Scan implementation plan for disseminating effective practices.
