The Impact of Deferred Maintenance in Minnesota

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  07/14/2020

Summary:

When local governments face fiscal problems, they often postpone maintenance of transportation infrastructure, leading to higher future costs. Researchers will investigate how cities and counties' fiscal conditions are affecting their maintenance expenditures, and the impact of deferred maintenance on Minnesota's local road system. Local governments will be able to use this data to make more informed policy decisions when setting their maintenance budgets.
