Protecting the Nation’s Investment: Asset Management in a Post MAP-21 Environment
The Geospatial Transportation Mapping Association (GTMA) supports a future in which accessible transportation data creates greater understanding, transparency and accountability for U.S. transportation policy decisions. Our “legends” series seeks to provide a final opportunity for those who have shaped transportation policy to share their insights before leaving for well-deserved retirement.
We are pleased to kick-off our series with Butch Wlaschin, P.E. (retired). Butch labored inthe transportation policy arena for 42 years. He became Director of the Office of Asset Management, Pavements and Construction in August 2007. Intimately involved in the development of proposed regulations designed at implementing MAP-21 pavement and bridge asset management requirements, he understands the challenges states will face in creating effective asset management systems. This “last lecture,” provides an opportunity to share lessons derived from a lifetime of experience and service with engineers now tasked with implementing new asset management requirements. A “Life” member of ASCE, a professional engineer, he holds a MSCE in Geotechnical Engineering from Georgia Tech and BSCE from Lamar University.
