Pavement Management System: Demonstration for Washington Counties

Description: The pavement management system developed by the State of Washington was modified to meet the needs of the counties in the State of Washington within the constraints of available data and resources. The modified system, called the Washington County Pavement Management System (WCPMS), was tested for Thurston and Benton counties. Results of this testing show that; (1) The WCPMS can be operated using the existing data in the county road log in combination with collected pavement condition survey data; (2) computer resources are available to most counties to access the State computer to execute the various programs in the WCPMS; and (3) routine usage of the WCPMS for a network of 1000 miles will require a level of effort of about 150 person-days and a computer cost of $1,000.
