Pavement Management Roadmap
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored the development of a Pavement Management Roadmap to help identify the steps needed to address current gaps in pavement
management and to establish research and development initiatives and priorities. This document presents a 10-year Pavement Management Roadmap that can be used to guide new research, development, and technology transfer opportunities that will lead to improved approaches to pavement management. This Roadmap can substantially improve current practices by identifying the existing gaps and needs in pavement management.
The final results of this project are presented in this report, which presents the prioritized list of research, development, and technology transfer opportunities recommended over the next 10 years. The report also documents the process undertaken to develop the Roadmap and the short- and
long-term needs statements that were produced. The needs statements included as Appendix B describe the activities recommended as part of the Roadmap, and their associated costs. The needs statements can be used by the FHWA or other research agencies to secure funding to advance the Pavement Management Roadmap. The needs statements are organized by theme and by recommended timeframe (i.e., short-term and long-term).
