organizations these d is something called a pavement management system The idea is to take a management approach to the maintenance of local roads Actually the implementation can range from one administrator know ing his analyzing condi tions and applying funds all the way up to a sophisticated computerized infrastructure management system with preconstructed report forms and rating factors Your road department has taken a middle of the road course in pursuit of the current technology We are developing a simplified software system that will print out a condition inventory of the road system and also allow input of data and factors to pro duce a sufficiency rating for each section of road defined We are defining road sections in four categories collectors subdivision streets and Class 4 roads Field measurements are being ob tamed of rightofway width pave ment passing sight distance and other measurable features To this data we will add information on traffic accident historical maintenance and data relating to surface condition and The inventory includes notations about the condition of each For is a road failing or near failure What is causing the failure Where are the recurring problems Do ditches need cleaning Are culverts open1 Have they failed Are they large enough Is the pavement shoving0 The program is being designed to reduce ail of this data to a specific rating for each section of county road The resulting information will help determine whether to apply routine seal or reconstruction of a particular section of road and along with budget when to do The bottom line to this whole thing is to attempt to get the most benefit for the tax dollar DAVID MAY e Courtly and Ciiy Government daily in the HeraldZritung starting THURSDAY semiANNUAL
