Development of a Comprehensive Plan to Enhance ADOT's Pavement Management Forecasting and Decision Making Capability

To maximize asset management; to facilitate pavement design and pavement preservation; and to precisely target highway infrastructure improvements, it is critical that the Arizona Department of Transportation enhance its Pavement Management cross-functional interconnectivity. This research is expected to provide software with real time access to pavement condition and design data on a state-wide basis, in a manner that can be readily used by Highway Development and Engineering District personnel. Implementation is expected to result in lower costs to develop highway design strategies. Even more importantly, it is expected to lower costs for the construction and maintenance of the State's highways throughout their lifecycle. This research is expected to recommend and deliver a web-based application that provides real-time access to statewide pavement condition and design data.
