PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT-ONE CITY'S EXPERIENCE

The development of a pavement evaluation and management system (PMS) by the city of Arvada, Colorado, is presented. The approaches and techniques used are presented to give the reader an understanding of the system's development and use. A computerized network-level system for ordering priorities was developed and placed on city computers. A visual condition survey rating was made not only of the predominantly hot mix asphalt concrete street network but also of other associated facilities that the city must maintain, such as curbs and gutters, sidewalks, and crosspans. Several of the computer-sorting routines are summarized to show the types of reports that engineers and maintenance personnel will have available from PMS. PMS was developed in such a manner as to allow city of Arvada personnel to maintain and improve the system in-house in future years. PMS techniques can be developed and made useful at the local level to order the priorities among projects and make budget forecasts of needs.
