This course was developed in partnership with the City and County Pavement Improvement Center, funded by California Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. This class delivery is supported by the California Department of Transportation, Division of Local Assistance, which offers reduced registration fees to employees of California's city, county, regional, and other public agencies.

Description

Pavement networks are often the most valuable asset that an agency owns. This asset is not only expensive to replace, but it is an essential component to the traveling public's safety. Agencies are looking for more cost-effective ways to perform engineering, maintenance, management, and rehabilitation of roadways more than ever before to stretch funding allocations. A pavement management system is an essential tool to assist in cost-effective roadway maintenance planning. This is the primary overview course on pavement management systems and preservation strategies in the training certificate program offered by the City and County Pavement Improvement Center (CCPIC) in partnership with TechTransfer.

Topics Include

  • Pavement management principles
  • Street inventory development
  • Pavement condition surveys (pavement distresses)
  • Pavement condition indices
  • Quality management
  • Types of PMS software
  • Types of maintenance treatments
  • Performance prediction models
  • Funding scenarios
  • Developing a work plan using appropriate prioritization techniques
  • Data to use in communicating with elected officials

What You Will Learn

This class will cover the fundamentals of pavement management systems (PMS). The student will learn the types of distresses included in a typical PMS, how pavements are surveyed for condition, and how condition and classification is used within a PMS. In addition, the inner workings of a PMS are described, covering prediction models and the use of varying funding scenarios and prioritization techniques to maximize your pavement network condition. The important topic of communicating with elected officials to sell your program will be covered. And preservation and maintenance techniques, commonly used by local agencies will be presented.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for engineers or maintenance superintendents responsible for:
  • Collecting data and updating a pavement management system
  • Determining the types of repairs for streets
  • Preparing cost-effective multi-year work plans e.g. resurfacing, seal programs, etc.
  • Planning how much funding is required for the future
  • Making presentations on funding street repairs to elected officials
  • Managing or maintenance of PMS software

Requirements

Students should bring a calculator and pencil for in-class problems
