The Maintenance Policy Office is primarily responsible for the development, modification and general maintenance of procedural guidelines for field maintenance activities. The purpose of these procedural guidelines is to document methods and processes to improve consistency and uniformity across the state while field maintenance personnel perform field maintenance activities on TDOT’s right-of-way. All procedural guidelines are developed utilizing key departmental personnel working within the 4 Regions. In an effort to reduce conflicts in documentation, this office researches and stays abreast of changes to existing policies and procedures from other agencies, departments, and divisions.


The policy office also handles the coordination of special programs within the maintenance division such as updating the Emergency Preparedness Plan, Vegetation Management Program, and other proposed special programs. In addition to special programs, this office works with the Environmental Compliance Office on matters concerning maintenance related issues pertaining to the Municipal Separate Stormwater Sewer System (MS4) document and other environmental issues.
