    Abstract

    The condition of the highway network in the United States is deteriorating rapidly. Maintenance and rehabilitation are becoming increasingly important. With an approximately 4 million mile highway network in place, and limited funds available for its maintenance, pavement management is assuming a significant role in the activities of America's highway agencies. This paper traces the history, development, and implementation of pavement management systems (PMS) through the past two decades. The results of a survey assessing the impact of the FHWA ruling requiring all state agencies to implement PMS by 1993 are presented. Applications for geographic information systems, knowledge based expert systems, and voice recognition systems in pavement management are discussed.
