The LRFD Specifications for Structural Supports for Highway Signs, Luminaires, and Traffic Signals, 1st Edition, incorporates and builds upon the design specifications found in the Sixth Edition of Standard Specifications for Structural Supports for Highway Signs, Luminaires, and Traffic Signals, which it supersedes. The specification includes current research on LRFD calibration, loads, and resistances plus relevant specifications from other AASHTO documents. Completely new sections on Fabrication, Construction, Inspection, and Asset Management based upon best practices have also been added. The 436-page publication is available in print (Item Code: LRFDLTS-1), as an online downloadable PDF (Item Code: LRFDLTS-1-UL), or as a set that includes both the print and PDF versions (Item Code: LRFDLTS-1-PUL).

The American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) is dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of highway assets. In May 2006, the National Center for Pavement Preservation (NCPP) was contracted to develop and administer its new Transportation System Preservation Technical Services Program (TSP∙2). The program was initiated as an efficient means to disseminate information to AASHTO member agencies for preserving their highway infrastructure, including both pavements and bridges. Its principal mission will be to serve as a clearinghouse with
comprehensive and up-to-date information on efficient and effective preservation measures that enhance highway performance and extend useful life.
