WSDOT Launches Online Highway Maintenance Survey

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Have an opinion on Washington’s highways? To make sure its maintenance goals are on track, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is asking the public to fill out an online survey.


The survey takes just a few minutes and asks people to rate highway pavement conditions, emergency response to collisions and bad weather, and how WSDOT should prioritize future highway maintenance spending. To make sure responses represent a cross-section of Washington residents, WSDOT requests some demographic information.


WSDOT sets its highway maintenance goals through a process called MAP – Maintenance Accountability Process, rating the level of service provided for each maintenance activity.
