Welcome to Rhode Island and the 2022 AASHTO Conference on Performance-Based Management, Planning, and Data! The theme of the AASHTO 2022 Conference on Performance-Based Management, Planning, and Data is Connecting the DOTs for an Adaptable, Agile, and Equitable Future. State DOTs must address a myriad of goals focused on safety, asset condition, operations, resilience, and equity among others, and plan for a future that is far from certain. There are also expectations that data will provide a wealth of information to better inform and support the decision-making process. This opening session will set the stage for the conference with a discussion among state DOT leadership on how their organizations are adapting their programs to be more agile for an uncertain future and equitable for all users of the transportation system.
