THIS REPORT PRESENTS THE RESULTS OF AN INVESTIGATION TO DETERMINE THE POSSIBILITY OF REALTING MOTORIST BENEFITS TO THE PAVEMENT SERVICEABILITY INDEX AND OF USING THESE BENEFITS IN THE COMPARISON OF PAVEMENT DESIGN STRATEGIES. THE MOTORIST BENEFITS THAT ARE CONSIDERED ARE THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH TRAVEL TIME, VEHICLE OPERATING COSTS, ACCIDENT COSTS, AND DISCOMFORT. A MODEL FOR RELATING THESE BENEFITS TO THE PAVEMENT SERVICEABILITY INDEX IS PRESENTED AND PRELIMINARY ESTIMATES OF BENEFITS ARE DEVELOPED.
