The Western Bridge Preservation Partnership (WBPP) is comprised of representatives from regional state and local highway agencies, provincial transport agencies, industry, suppliers, consultants, and academia. Any interested agency, organization, company, or group may join and participate in the activities of this Partnership by contributing funds to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), or by paying fees to attend the annual workshop and conference.
Mission and Objectives
Through the free and open exchange of ideas and information, the WBPP’s mission is to better serve those who use the western transportation system. We will strive to use innovation, new ideas, new products, and our combined experience to make our bridge maintenance procedures and repairs the best that can be provided. Together, we will take bridge maintenance in the western states forward toward excellence and, through teamwork and cooperation, increase morale and bring a positive sense of accomplishment to the team members of our bridge maintenance departments.
The Partnership’s Vision Statement, Mission Statement, and Objectives may be found in the Partnership’s By-Laws.
The Partnership is supported by voluntary contributions by member agencies made to AASHTO in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
The Partnership’s policies and major activities are determined by the members and implemented through an elected Steering Committee consisting of a Chair, two Vice-Chairs, and a Secretary / Treasurer. Including the Steering Committee, there are ten elected Directors who represent the Partnership’s various constituencies. The Steering Committee conducts the business operations of the Partnership and participates with the National Center for Pavement Preservation (NCPP) in organizing the Annual Meeting.
