The Nevada Department of Transportation's (NDOT's) pavement management system (PMS) was developed by an in-house advisory committee in 1979 and 1980. Impetus to develop the system came from the NDOT's need to quantify statewide pavement needs and rank them in priority order. In discussing NDOT's PMS, this article provides background information up to the 1970s, then reviews NDOT's change in priority from new construction to preserving the existing highway system, NDOT's pavement condition survey, NDOT's priority rating of pavement preservation projects, the 1989 Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) review of NDOT's PMS, NDOT's cooperative development of pavement performance models with the University of Nevada, Reno, and NDOT's continuing PMS research.
