Cost Effectiveness of Pavement Treatments

Grants and Contracts Details


The utilization of a variety of pavement maintenance treatments are being used more widely throughout the country and in Kentucky. It is anticipated that the use of these techniques would improve the overall performance of pavements and allow for the best utilization of available resources. This research will document the potential performance improvement which might be expected for various treatments. To have a true pavement management system we need to do forecasting and focus on remaining service life. In order to do that, we need to know the effectiveness of the things we are currently doing. As the Cabinet continues to implement their new Pavement Management System, this type of information will be critical to allow for the stabilization of the highway network, by eliminating peaks and valleys in the desired levels of performance. This information will also assist the Cabinet in their implementation of a Pavement Preservation Program, which will focus on improving the remaining service life by addressing the pavements which have the best costbenefit, rather than always addressing the worst-first scenario.
