Developing a New Pavement Program Planning Process Based on Life-Cycle Benefit-Cost Analysis

The objective of this project is to develop an advanced pavement program planning procedure based on life-cycle benefit-cost analysis. This project will conduct a study on successful pavement management programs to understand the state of the practice. Effective (yet simple) mathematical models will be developed to support pavement program planning practices. A spreadsheet-based computer program will be developed to serve as a decision-making support tool that facilitates the planning process.
