Evaluate the Improvement in Pavement Ride, Distress and Condition Based on Different Treatment Types

The scope of this project involves preparing a set of guidelines to assist the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) districts in identifying the appropriate pavement management information system (PMIS) treatment levels to develop pavement management plans, and also to predict the improvement of pavement ride, distress, and condition due to assigned treatments. The project will also investigate the need to incorporate a network level structural index to the decision criteria, and evaluate if treatment level definitions should be expanded or sublevels added to the major categories. An enhanced PMIS decision making process to assign treatment levels will result in better forecasting of pavement performance allowing TxDOT to have reliable information to support funding allocation decisions when developing pavement management plans.
