Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

141   Transportation agencies are urged to present their research findings to the AASHTO risk man- agement and asset management committees. Those two committees provide the most direct access to other state DOT staff likely to apply this research. Members of those committees could be queried about interest in a pooled fund training program or other joint efforts to help state DOTs develop the skills to apply these research findings. Similarly, the TRB Committee on Transportation Asset Management (AJE30) can be engaged through presentations or a workshop at their annual meeting. A related group to be contacted about either an annual meeting presentation or a workshop is the TRB Standing Committee on Pavement Management Systems (AKT10). Another venue for outreach and exposure to state DOT practitioners is the National Highway Institute (NHI). The findings of this research can be shared with NHI for possible inclusion in their updated risk management course materials. Another opportunity is to brief FHWA on the findings and suggest it consider providing direct training on how to use the tools and techniques. FHWA currently has contracts to provide training on four reports that it is developing. These include three on asset management practices and one on how assets in good repair support other performance objectives. Training in these advanced risk management practices would support FHWA’s desire to promote risk-based asset management. S E C T I O N 1 3 Implementation Plan

The assessment of climatic and extreme weather risks is increasingly becoming important to the operation of transportation agencies. There are easy-to-use tools and techniques that can be implemented by agencies.

NCHRP Research Report 1066: Risk Assessment Techniques for Transportation Asset Management: Conduct of Research, from TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program, discusses how to assess risks and summarizes 12 studies that demonstrate how to enhance the measurement of risks, quantify risks, and better link risk management processes with the appropriate tools.

Supplemental to the report are a presentation and NCHRP Web-Only Document 366: Risk Assessment Techniques for Transportation Asset Management: Appendices.
