A Pavement Management System for County Roads in the State of Alabama

In recent years asset management has become important because the public wants to see the Federal, State, and Local governments run more like a private business. A pavement management system (PMS) is one aspect of asset management that deals entirely with roadways. A PMS is essentially a decision support tool that stores various types of information about roads and supports future forecasts of condition. This report covers a PMS that was designed for county roads in the state of Alabama. A PMS computer program was designed with county engineers in mind, for expedient management of their roads. To incorporate future forecasts of condition, road data were collected and analyzed with linear regression to build a pavement deterioration equation.
