  • Overview
  • Instructor


After Participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the history and governing principles of asset management
  • Identify key pavement condition assessment needs
  • Understand the benefits and costs of developing an understanding of the condition of roadway infrastructure
  • Develop an appropriate scope, data needs and frequency of testing for pavement testing
  • Understand the need and value of using specialized equipment for the evaluation of pavement condition
  • Use the pavement condition data to develop performance models to predict future asset condition
  • Understand asset condition dashboards to communicate current asset conditions
  • Identify asset management best practices


The need to preserve our municipal roadway pavement infrastructure is paramount to ensuring the viability of the transportation of people and goods. This requires ever-increasing investments because the road infrastructure is typically the most valuable asset owned by public agencies. The consequence of the lack of systematic maintenance and renewal is accelerated deterioration of the asset condition, which then requires a more expensive treatment to return the asset to a serviceable condition. 

This webinar provides an understanding of the basics of pavement condition evaluation, what the data means, and how it can be used to improve pavement maintenance and rehabilitation decision-making. Timely and appropriate intervention can lead to longer pavement life and higher quality experience for the users of our infrastructure and, when used as an effective part of asset management, reduce the overall life-cycle cost of the roadway network.
