North American Study on Contracting Snow and Ice Response

Lundi, 13 Mars, 2017 - 20:45

Snow and ice control operations are a vital function often conducted by state and local transportation agencies. Many states are choosing to contract snow and ice response services, instead of or in addition to the use of in-­house forces, to maintain lean departments and avoid the equipment responsibilities. This has been a common practice for years, at both state and local levels. How, when, and why contractors are used varies considerably among agencies. This research effort utilized a literature review, survey, and synthesis of collected information to identify the state-­of-the-­practice and state-­of-­the-­art when using contracted services, and identifies lessons learned by agencies.
