State Reports: Performance Assumptions Used to Support LCCA
Questions include:

  • What length of analysis period does your state use?
  • Are concrete overlays considered as a rehabilitation strategy?
  • How does your state determine the time until 1st rehabilitation; 2nd rehabilitation; 3rd rehabilitation, etc., for each pavement type?
  • What preservation treatments are used and what are the performance assumptions for each?
  • Are the planned preservation treatments tied into your pavement management system?
  • Are the planned preservation treatments actually accomplished?
