Grants and Contracts Details
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet tracks routine and emergency roadway maintenance costs in a database system called Operation Management System (OMS). Some of these cost categories, such as rock fall and landslide mitigation, are related to geologic site conditions of road cuts and slopes. Costs are attributed to roadway milepoint segments, and therefore can be analyzed in a geographic context. The purpose of this study is to extract raw cost data from OMS, convert these data to a geospatial database, and investigate the geologic context of the sites in order to determine which geologic conditions and geographic regions are prone to maintenance issues.
