Life Cycle Cost Calculator

How to use this Tool

With the right treatments applied at the right times, pavements can last 40 years or more. Experiment with optimizing treatment strategies to maximize the life of your roads while maintaining lower cost per square yard.

Use this tool to compare the cumulative impact of less frequent maintenance under a worst-first approach with a preservation approach that treats and preserves your road every few years. See examples and learn more about the life cycle cost here.

Note: This calculator does not account for user costs or salvage value. For a comprehensive look at the lifecycle cost of your pavement, consider a detailed model provided by a formal pavement management system.
