Development of a Comprehensive Plan to Enhance ADOT's Pavement Management System

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 that will function as a pavement management system and source of pavement condition and design data on a statewide basis accessible to 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.
