Washington Airport Pavement Management System: Pavement Management Manual

An airport pavement management system (APMS) can be used as a tool to identify system needs, make programming decisions for funding, provide information for legislative decision making, and assist local jurisdictions with planning decisions. The Pavement Management Manual is designed to be used in conjunction with the individual airport reports delivered to each airport included in the State’s APMS. It is divided into three sections. Section 1 provides an overview of the pavement management process and the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) procedure. Section 2 provides guidance on what an airport needs to do to remain in compliance with Public Law 103-305. While this law only applies to National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) airports, it is highly recommended that non-NPIAS airports also undertake the activities prescribed in it since they are highly beneficial. Section 2 also contains information on distress types/severity combinations that warrant immediate action and/or notification of the Washington State Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration of conditions. Section 3 describes how an airport sponsor can use its individual airport report to plan for pavement maintenance and rehabilitation projects.
