NDOT's Maintenance and Asset Management division has an essential function and responsibility within NDOT to assist the agency in meeting its overall mission, core values and goals. The mission of this group is to support the maintenance districts to assure that the Department-maintained highway system is maintained to as high a level as possible consistent with work plans, policies, program objectives, budget, and available resources.
Highway maintenance is defined as the preservation of roadway facilities in a safe and useable condition. NDOT’s maintenance work, exclusive of architectural services, are categorized into three areas:
- Routine maintenance—work needed on a daily basis to repair damage to the highway system and perform operational activities which keep the traveling public moving in a safe and efficient manner. Examples are crack filling, striping, sweeping, culvert cleaning, repairing concrete, replacing traffic signs, and sealing pavement.
- Capital improvement—work that will slow down the deterioration or extend the life of the highway system. Examples are chip seal, cold in-place recycle, microsurfacing, bridge maintenance, slope flattening, and guardrail installation.
- Emergency activities—work needed due to accidents and natural disasters to stabilize and remediate travel ways and damaged structures. Examples are snow removal, traffic incident cleanup, flood damage repair and guardrail/impact attenuator repair.
To better maintain the expansive territory of Nevada, NDOT is divided into the following six Maintenance Sub Districts:
- District 1 – Las Vegas Sub District
- District 1 – Tonopah Sub District
- District 2 – Reno/Carson City Sub District
- District 3 – Elko Sub District
- District 3 – Ely Sub District
- District 3 – Winnemucca Sub District
NDOT maintenance may be performed by Department employees, by Contract or by other governmental agencies authorized by Department. The Department’s approach to highway maintenance has evolved to include more contracted maintenance over the years. NDOT will continue to work with industry partners to provide cost effective maintenance solutions.
Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP)
Federal asset management provisions enacted in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, or MAP-21, require a State DOT to develop and implement a risk-based asset management plan to achieve and sustain a state of good repair over the life cycle of the assets and to improve or preserve the condition of the National Highway System. NDOT's TAMP also serves as an important communication and accountability tool that will guide transportation asset investments. The TAMP summarizes the quantities and condition of certain assets (pavement, bridge and ITS assets) and the agency's plans for managing these assets for the next 10 years.

District Open Term Contract Program
The following Map is used by NDOT District personnel and asphalt suppliers to ascertain the projected costs of asphalt used in maintenance projects. It is also used by the asphalt suppliers to calculate any fuel or asphalt escalation added to a project due to fluctuations in diesel and asphalt prices when invoicing.
