By applying numeric importance weightings to key performance parameters that reflect the overall condition of a road section, we may develop a composite condition index. A composite condition index can be used to monitor and report pavement health or to trigger maintenance actions during both short and long-term programming. A single composite index can replace multiple condition parameters to simplify pavement modeling and treatment selection logic. This paper describes the process of deriving… CONTINUE READING
