Abstract

The benefits of pavement management system when fully implemented are well known and the history of successful implementation is rich. Implementation occurs, for purposes of this paper, when the pavement management system is the critical component for making pavement decisions. This paper addresses the issues that act as barriers to full implementation of pavement management systems. Institutional barriers, not technical and financial barriers, are more commonly responsible for a pavement management systems falling short of full implementation. The paper groups these institutional issues into a general taxonomy. In general, more effort needs to be put forth by highway agencies to overcome institutional issues. Most agencies approach pavement management as a technical process, but more commonly, institutional issues become more problematic and thus require more attention paid to institutional issues. The paper concludes by summarizing the implementation process being taken by the Iowa Department of Transportation. The process was designed to overcome institutional barriers and facilitate the complete and full implementation of their pavement management system.
