Abstract: Effective management of pavement facilities can provide several benefits both the agency and the travelling public over the long term. The benefits achieved from improved rehabilitation programming decision making are presented for a case study highway network. The VMT on pavements in good condition increased 28 percent when a simple ranking (worst first) method was used and 89 percent when an optimization method was used to select rehabilitation projects over a ten year period. The same annual and total expenditure of funds was used for each selection method.
