  • Pavement Management
  • Quality Assurance

QES provides a step forward in understanding the use of pavement performance data including ride, rutting, and distress data in network-level pavement management applications. The improved understanding and confidence in pavement condition data quality resulting from this project can create the potential to elevate the reliability of pavement condition data quality used by the agencies, and consequently that of the pavement treatment recommendations resulting in improved management of pavement assets. From this comparative analysis, the metrics necessary to support network-level use of the data, and the objective of providing recommendations for supporting MAP-21 performance-based reporting requirements will be developed.
