    Abstract

    Initiation of a pavement management system in Kentucky occurred in the early 1980's. Since that time, the system has continued to evolve into a more complex and extensive working system. This paper documents current pavement management practices and identifies future needs. The current organizational plan of the pavement management system is described. The goals, functions, and major tasks of the Pavement Management Branch of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet are listed. A brief description of some of the pavement evaluation procedures currently being used is also included. It is concluded that Kentucky's pavement management system is well advanced, particularly in the area of pavement evaluation and condition assessment.
