Maintenance Level of Service Budget Manual

Description: Louisiana developed a maintenance planning and budgeting implementation plan for the LADOTD. This approach is outcome-based which means that a desired level of service is defined, the annual maintenance programs are designed to provide that level of service, and the resulting conditions are assessed to determine if the desired outcomes were achieved. Budgets were developed at the district level for 23 maintenance elements that included pavement, roadside, drainage, and traffic control features. These budgets allow estimating the required labor, equipment and materials required to maintain these assets at levels of services set by the Department.
