Late comments will be considered to the extent practicable. Background Under the asset management provisions enacted in MAP–21, codified at 23 U.S.C. 119, State DOTs must develop and implement a risk-based TAMP. This TAMP must include all National Highway System (NHS) pavements and bridges, regardless of whether the State or some other entity owns the relevant NHS facility. The FHWA must take two actions with respect to State DOT asset management activities. The first is TAMP development process certification/recertification. Under 23 U.S.C. 119(e)(6), FHWA must certify at least every 4 years that the State DOT’s processes for developing its TAMP are consistent with applicable requirements. The FHWA must also recertify whenever the State amends its TAMP development processes, in accordance with 23 CFR 515.13(c). The second FHWA action, under 23 U.S.C. 119(e)(5), is an annual consistency determination, which evaluates whether the State DOT has developed and implemented a TAMP that is consistent with the requirements of 23 U.S.C. 119. The FHWA adopted the asset management rule, 23 CFR part 515, to implement these and other asset management requirements. The FHWA Division Offices (Divisions) are responsible for making these two decisions on behalf of FWHA. To assist State DOTs and Divisions with these requirements, the FHWA Office of Asset Management, Pavements, and Construction is seeking comment on the two draft guidance documents announced by this notice. Please note that any comments should be limited to these guidance documents; FHWA is not soliciting further comment on the Asset Management Final Rule.
