The system developed for evaluating existing pavement condition and determining future needs considers structural adequacy, serviceability, slipperiness, and surface defects of each pavement section. The data are processed through the computer, and output tables show existing condition and predicted life, thickness requirements for a specified life period, surface defects or distress, and a priority rating. Statewide data have been gathered and analyzed each year since 1970. The pavement design procedures have been computerized so that data can be entered at a remote terminal and the pavement design can be determined through the computer and printed out by the terminal. Under development is a pavement management system that considers all highway department operations that could possibly affect pavement performance.
