Quarterly Gray Notebook report analyzes the conditions of the aviation network, capital facilities, and ferry vessels and terminals

OLYMPIA – Washington State Department of Transportation’s quarterly performance report, the Gray Notebook, takes a closer look at how well its methods of maintaining and preserving statewide assets are working.­

Gray Notebook 71 (pdf 5.1 mb), which covers the quarter ending Sept. 30, 2018, focuses on the conditions of WSDOT’s aviation network, capital facilities and ferries vessels and terminals, analyzing where progress is being made and where backlogs are growing. Key asset management findings from this edition include:

  • WSDOT’s Airport Aid Grant Program leveraged federal funding to make $42.9 million available for airport investments in fiscal year 2019. WSDOT completed a $5.1 million pavement rehabilitation project at the Methow Valley State Airport.
  • As of Sept. 2018, 25 WSDOT-owned primary buildings (2,000 square feet or larger) were 80 years or older. The current preservation and replacement backlog for WSDOT-owned primary buildings in 2018 is $239.3 million.
  • Washington State Ferries vessels were operationally available for 82 percent of fiscal year 2018. Approximately 90 percent of WSF terminal systems were in fair or better condition at the end of calendar year 2017.
