Municipalities, Pavement, PMS, Roads, Saudi Arabia.


In recent years, a pavement management system (PMS) has been widely used by highway agencies to manage their roads effectively, especially with significant increases in traffic loadings, limited budget, aging of pavement network, and improper road design and construction. AL-Qassim region, Saudi Arabia, is facing enormous challenges in dealing with pavement networks because the current pavement management system is not capable to maintain the pavement network at desirable condition, leading them to taking improper decisions regarding maintenance and rehabilitation activities. Therefore, it is important to maintain the current roads at an acceptable level of service by coordinating the maintenance works and evaluating the pavement condition periodically to reduce the deterioration rate. The goal of this paper is to review the practiced PMS and study how it can be implemented in Al-Qassim roads with some adjustments. The proposed PMS will assist the decision-makers in Al-Qassim municipality in planning the maintenance and rehabilitation works during the roads design life.
