NCHRP LRD 82 51 APPENDIX B. SURVEY QUESTIONNAIRE The following survey questionnaire was delivered to all 50 State DOTs, typically to the office responsible for asset manage- ment, as part of this research project in order to identify unsta- ble slope management programs, and also to identify litigation involving unstable slope management programs.
52 NCHRP LRD 82 Please provide the name and address of your organization: Please provide the name, telephone number, and email address of the individual completing the survey: Has your state adopted a geotechnical asset management program, such as an Unstable Slope Management Program (USMP) or Rockfall Hazard Rating System (RHRS) to track potentially unstable highway slopes? O Yes o No o Unknown If so, please identify the geotechnical asset management program used by your state, including any reference citation such as a website or report describing the program: If known, approximately how many slopes or other geotechnical assets are included in your state's geotechnical asset management program? Does your state's geotechnical asset management program provide a ranking of unstable slopes or geotechnical hazards? 0 Yes o No o Unknown Is your state's geotechnical asset management program used to determine remedial or mitigation measures for unstable slopes or geotechnical hazards? O Yes o No o Unknown If so, please describe how the remedial or mitigation measure is determined: Has your state's geotechnical asset management program ever been used to support the position of the State DOT or any other party with respect to any legal claim or lawsuit involving rockfall, landslide, or other slope failure? O Yes o No o Unknown If so, please provide as much information as possible about the legal claim or lawsuit (including case citation or docket number, if possible): (C02688SS,1} 2

NATIONAL COOPERATIVE HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROGRAM Systematic, well-designed, and implementable research is the most effective way to solve many problems facing state depart- ments of transportation (DOTs) administrators and engineers. Often, highway problems are of local or regional interest and can best be studied by state DOTs individually or in cooperation with their state universities and others. However, the accelerating growth of highway transportation results in increasingly complex problems of wide interest to highway authorities. These prob- lems are best studied through a coordinated program of cooperative research. Recognizing this need, the leadership of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) in 1962 initiated an objective national highway research program using modern scientific techniquesâthe National Coopera- tive Highway Research Program (NCHRP). NCHRP is supported on a continuing basis by funds from participating member states of AASHTO and receives the full cooperation and support of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), United States Depart ment of Transportation, under Agreement No. 693JJ31950003.
