This paper summarizes the current planning effort that the City of Seattle's Engineering Department (SED) is undertaking for Transportation Infrastructure Management. The project to be discussed involves the development of a conceptual system design for inventorying the condition of transportation system capital components (pavements, bridges, signals, etc. ), developing costs for desired maintenance strategies, and feeding this 'needs' information into the Capital Improvement Programming (CIP) and budgeting processes.
