Asset Programs and Performance Targets

CDOT’s 11 asset programs have performance metrics and targets approved by the Transportation Commission. Some targets are long-held goals of the department and are referred to as "aspirational". They reflect a desired level of service, should CDOT receive revenues beyond those projected. The current fiscal environment, however, consists of limited revenues. Therefore there is a need for "fiscally constrained” targets that represent the performance that can be achieved with expected revenues.

a These objectives and targets are from PD 14, adopted by the Transportation Commission.  Others are staff recommended, and subject to available funding.
bTo be completed December 2014 with incorporation into AIMS.
cTarget pending data collection.
d Some sites will always remain in the D category due to traffic volume.  And at some sites, to effectively eliminate or significantly reduce the likelihood is beyond the scope of the Geohazards Program.
e The walls inventory and condition are being collected under a 2 year project, so the information in this table is based on estimates.
f Culverts are minor structures between 4’ and 20’.
g Overall signal infrastructure includes signal assemblies, cabinets and controllers.

The gap between current performance and “fiscally constrained” targets enables CDOT to better manage the balance between available funds and achievable performance across assets. Once annual budgets have been established for each asset funds are applied to projects to reduce the performance gap.

The largest three asset programs; surface treatment, bridge and maintenance, comprise roughly 50% of the asset management budget. Detailed performance for these three assets is reported in the annual CDOT Deficit Report which can be found at this link: https://www.codot.gov/library/AnnualReports.
