Capital Programs Investment

The Capital Programs Investment Division provides the expertise and resources to support performance based management and to use data in improving project decision making to increase the accountability and transparency of the NMDOT. Implementation of a Transportation Asset Management Plan that meets new Federal performance management requirements is key to improving our transportation system to meet the mobility and access needs of the individual and business users. The New Mexico 2040 Plan, NMDOT's statewide long-range multimodal transportation plan, serves as the primary framework for guiding decisions at all levels within the NMDOT and the Transportation Asset Management Plan is a mid-term plan that addresses how the NMDOT will improve or preserve the condition of the assets and the performance of the National Highway System. All projects in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) are consistent with the Transportation Asset Management Plan and the 2040 Plan.

The Asset Management & Planning Division consists of the Pavement Management and Design Bureau, Data Management Bureau, Maintenance Management Bureau, and Statewide Planning Bureau.

Pavement Management and Design

As NMDOT moves toward the implementation of MAP-21 and associated Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP), NMDOT Pavement Management will be utilized more and more to support the state’s long term plans and vision.

NMDOT Pavement Management & Design performs the following activities:

  • Assess both current and future pavement conditions
  • Estimate funding needs to achieve target roadway condition levels
  • Identify pavement preservation, rehabilitation and reconstruction recommendations that optimize the use of available funding
  • Evaluate and illustrate the impact of different investment levels and treatment strategies to both short- and long-term pavement conditions
  • Justify funding levels.
  • Evaluate the long-term impacts of changes in materials properties, construction practices, and design procedures on pavement performance.

Information that describes NMDOT’s methodology and procedures for collecting pavement roughness, rutting and distress data, the Department’s Data Quality Management Plan, how pavement roughness, rutting and distress data are used to calculate pavement performance indexes of roadway sections are available upon request.

Asset Management

This Bureau is responsible collaborating will multiple functional groups within NMDOT for Budget reports, Commission reports, FHWA Quarterly reports as well as Performance Management and provided to DFA, FHWA and the Legislative Finance Committee will the information required.

Federal surface transportation legislation, beginning with MAP-21 and continued in the FAST Act, established performance requirements for states and MPOs under the Transportation Performance Management (TPM) program. United States Department of Transportation established national performance measures via final rules. State DOTs and MPOs establish performance targets based on those rules. Tables with targets for three federally mandated performance measure topics are linked below, and include both NMDOT and MPO targets:
