As a result of the 1991 Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA), significant funding is now available for the rehabilitation of the nation's Interstate highway system. Much of this system has been in service since the 1960s, providing over 30 years of service despite traffic levels that have greatly exceeded the original designs. Many engineers are now faced with selecting the most cost effective rehabilitation alternatives for these highways. These are difficult engineering decisions that involve millions of taxpayer dollars and unfortunately the knowledge base from which to draw from is limited.
