ILLINOIS PAVEMENT FEEDBACK DATA AND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. FINAL REPORT. CIVIL ENGINEERING SERIES (RESEARCH)

The Interstate highway system is "the most critical lifeline of the economy in the nation as well as Illinois." The vital transportation facility carries more than 50% of all goods shipped by highway in Illinois. Most of the system was built in the 1960's and 1970's and due to its age and heavy truck traffic, is currently experiencing considerable deterioration and requiring large rehabilitation funding. The Illinois Pavement Feedback Data and Management System (IPFS) was developed to assist administrators, planners and engineers of IDOT in managing the strategic transportation system. The report provides an overview of the capabilities of IPFS. Two major components of IPFS include: (1) A comprehensive Illinois Interstate highway pavement database of over 500 sections; and (2) Procedures for retrieval and analysis of information through direct user queries, menu-driven automated database reports and analysis programs for pavement evaluation and rehabilitation and determining multi-year pavement funding needs. For example, several useful analysis results were obtained using the database including traffic loading trends and the performance of JRCP, CRCP and AC overlays over the past 30 years. Results obtained from the IPFS study provide several valuable tools for use by IDOT personnel in managing the Interstae highway network into the 1990's and beyond.
