This tool is designed to explore cost-effective solutions to pavement at varying levels of distress. Input your pavement criteria for potential solutions relevant to you.
Though these tools use distress to identify potential treatment solutions, the savviest pavement managers are stretching budgets further by preventatively addressing deterioration before it starts. Link treatments together to make pavement last 40 years or more, or consider using innovative recycling methods to cost-effectively reengineer your pavement cross-section to meet increased load or traffic requirements and increase strength and longevity.

Other Factors to Consider
When selecting asphalt treatments, experts, engineers and contractors take into account many additional factors, including:
The most significant distress affecting your pavement. Many pavements exhibit multiple distresses. To use this tool most effectively, select the primary distress.
Pavement Condition Index (PCI) is one of many scales used to indicate the general condition of a pavement. PCI is evaluated based on inspection and observation and must account for both the severity and extent of pavement distress. Throughout the PPRA site, we’ve used the following scale. Knowing the condition of your network is the first step in improving overall network condition and many manual and automated methods exist. If you’re unsure of your road’s PCI, please visit our photo gallery of roads at varying levels of distress to gain a general idea.
A - Excellent
B - Good
C - Fair
D - Poor
F - Very Poor
