So what is Pavement Management? Pavement Managment can best be described as the means of ascertaining what you have in a network of streets, what is the quality of the pavement in that network and what is the most effective way to positively affect the quality of that pavement.
In layman's terms, what does that mean? Objectively assess the quality of your street network and maintain it in the most effective manner.
What are the objectives of a Pavement Management System?
Develope and maintain a database of street attributes,
regularly inspect the street network for pavement quality,
then analyze that database to ascertain road improvement projects with short and longterm implications.
So how does the City of Sunset Hills accomplish these objectives? Via use of an Access database with GIS, inspection using the PASER inspection system, analysis in the Deighton (TM) suites of dRoads and dTims. More detail can be found on this in subsequent webpages on this subject. Here you will find out:
