SHA Asset Management Program

​ ​ ​
​The State Highway Administration (SHA) plans, designs, builds, operates, maintains and improves the majority of Maryland’s freeways, highways, and non-toll bridges. To keep this critical infrastructure operational, our agency launched the Asset Management Program in 2021 to make transparent, data-driven decisions to maintain assets in a state of good repair. We are committed to asset to management as a continuou​s improvement pro​cess.​​

The Asset Management Program is managed by a specialized inhouse operations office and enables us to achieve optimal outcomes​​ from SHA’s maintenance and capital investments while following federal guidance. As​set lifecycle managers implement best practices to comply with regulations, imp​rove our performance, and support sound decision-making throughout the infrastructure’s lifespan. This ensures the longevity of our assets and provides a safe, well-maintained, reliable​ highway system.

Asset management allows us to take a fresh look at our assets and​ understa​nd their condition as well as the maintenance, preservation and capi​tal pro​grams needed to achieve and maintain our desired system performance. With this program in place, our focus on people, processes and technology enables us to make better and more effective decisions to sustain our transportation network, from roads and bridges to lighting and signage.
