... 4 Introduction Background Current legislation and subsequent asset management rules require state DOTs to conduct statewide evaluations of roads, highways, and bridges that have required repair and reconstruction activities two or more times due to emergency events as declared by the president of the United States or by a state's governor. These requirements, commonly referred to as 23 CFR § 667, Periodic Evaluation of Facilities Repeatedly Requiring Repair and Reconstruction Due to Emergency Events, involve an assessment of prior damage due to emergency events since January 1, 1997, as well as the development of a process to ensure that alternate improvements are considered in locations requiring repetitive repairs and reconstruction after future emergency events.

... Introduction 5 This synthesis documents the current state of practice and illustrates the innovative ways that several state DOTs have approached the reporting of repairs associated with emergency events. Objective of the Synthesis This synthesis furnishes documentary evidence of the approaches that state DOTs have taken to identify and evaluate locations where highway assets have been repeatedly damaged and to identify considerations that have been made for mitigating the risk of recurring damage to assets in those areas.

... 6 Asset Management Approaches to Identifying and Evaluating Assets Damaged Due to Emergency Events • Federal and state guidelines for compliance with 23 CFR § 667, • State policies and procedures related to compliance with 23 CFR § 667, • State reports, websites, databases, or other information sources relevant to compliance with 23 CFR § 667, • State submissions for compliance with 23 CFR § 667, • International practices, and • Domestic and international research into documenting and analyzing damage due to emergency events. Second, a survey distributed to the asset management contacts in each of the 50 state DOTs, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia, as identified by FHWA, asked for information about the process that was followed in responding to § 667, the adequacy of the information available, and the way the information was used.
