This book focuses on the process of pavement management including: data acquisition and evaluation, network level priority programming, project level design, construction and maintenance, and the principles, methods, and
technology which enable the process to become a working system. Examples of working systems are provided, as well as guidelines for implementation. Research management, future issues, special problems, new technologies, and innovation opportunities are also addressed. The book shows that good pavement management will result in safe, cost-effective pavements through the coordinated, systematic conduct of data, priority programming, design, construction, maintenance, and other activities.
