WHAT ARE THE TRUE COSTS AND BENEFITS OF PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT?

A major issue not adequately treated by many agencies is the comparison of the costs and benefits of implementing a pavement management system (PMS). This issue must be addressed more fully in the future if pavement management is to prosper. Any such analysis must be done by individual agencies. It is not sufficient to be convinced that the benefits of implementing a PMS in an agency outweigh the costs; this must be demonstrated. This paper discusses general and specific aspects of benefit-cost studies. It also suggests methodologies to be considered for application by any agency.
