Addressing the Institutional issues is one of the most important criteria in implementing an effective pavement management process in a state highway agency. This paper describes the organizational issues involved in the implementation effort including resistance to change, not-invented-here syndrome, misdirected outputs, turf issues, and the long time frame required for development. The implementation process used by the Illinois Department of Transportation is outlined including the use of committees and the long-term planning of development and implementation phases. Finally, the paper portrays general concepts which can be utilized to effect implementation in state highway agencies.
