Pavement Rehabilitation

This article describes a new software program, Construction Analysis for Pavement Rehabilitation Strategies, or CA4PRS, developed by researchers at the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California at Berkeley. As many of California’s state highways, built during the Sixties and Seventies, come to the end of their design lives, Caltrans has shifted focus from new highway construction to the rehabilitation of existing roadways. The new software allows transportation officials to determine the most effective strategy for rehabilitating and maintaining the state’s highways, by analyzing traffic and construction durations in congested urban areas. It can determine the most efficient construction timeframes as well as select accurate traffic management plans. Some 1,000 transportation engineers in 10 state transportation departments have received training in CA4PRS.
