Task 38, FY 1989, "AASHTO Guidelines for Pavement Management Systems" (ARE, Inc.). This task was requested by the AASHTO Task Force on Pavement Management. The objective was to completely revise and expand the AASHTO Guidelines on Pavement Management (1985), incorporating the latest theory and practices. The new guide gives effective guidance to states that are in the early phase of Pavement Management Systems (PMS) development, guides states with existing systems toward state-of-the-art practices, identifies and encourages areas of uniformity of certain practices and data, and assists states in providing guidance to local transportation agencies. Research is complete, and AASHTO has published the new Guidelines for Pavement Management Systems. This task was expanded to allow participation of the research agency in the FHWA-sponsored Advance Pavement Management Course. That involvement has been successfully completed.
