Data System for Planning Maintenance Resurfacing

Report No: 72-R36

Published in 1973

About the report:

Planning for maintenance resurfacing in the Virginia Department of Highways is becoming an increasingly complex and important function. Increasing highway mileage and traffic volumes, as well as other requirements such as maintaining a minimum skid resistance, require that many variables be considered in order to most efficiently allocate the maintenance resurfacing dollar. The purpose of this study was to develop an outline of a computer based data system for use in planning maintenance resurfacings on the interstate, arterial, and primary highways. The study deals with the determination of how planning for maintenance resurfacing is presently accomplished, the data that should be included in a new system, and how the data should be analyzed and presented; i.e., what outputs should be developed, who should receive them, and how they should be used. Also, to the extent possible, the costs and problems of making the new system operational are identified.
