B4−8: Annual Maintenance Tour
A State maintenance engineers' tour of innovative maintenance activities is conducted annually, beginning in 1996. Participants in the tour include each of the former Region 8 State's maintenance engineer, as well as participants from each Division Office, the Resource Center, and Headquarters. The tour provides a forum to meet and discuss maintenance ideas and technology of common interest, including temporary traffic control. Each State takes a turn hosting the event.
REASON(S) FOR ADOPTING:
Many States utilize new technology and/or practices in their maintenance activities. Unfortunately, there is not a good mechanism for routinely sharing the ideas with other States. The tour provides for the exchange of information.
The benefit being realized from this annual tour is the increased use of new technology and practices in neighboring States.
