Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) needed a way to generate a multi-year pavement management plan based on financial facts and engineering data. Ideally, the plan needed to be roadway-specific, budget-constrained, and capable of being used to assess the impact of allocated funding.
TxDOT defined the following goals:
- Develop a comprehensive, uniform 4-year pavement management plan
- Generate pavement projects based on roadway-specific data and fiscal constraints
- Predict project outcomes and assess the impact of allocated funds
