Integrated Plans for Commercial Pavement Management
Integrated Master Schedule
Regarding project management, budget requirements, and timelines, at NVM Paving and Concrete, we have decades of experience providing the highest quality service in the region. Integrated plans for Commercial pavement management are crucial for cities to oversee their pavement networks properly.
Creating a rolling 5-year pavement management plan with an Integrated Master Schedule (IMS) ensures that all project participants stay informed and can track schedules, costs, and risk activity. An IMS helps decision-makers implement the best cost-effective solutions to maximize their budgets.
During the evaluation process, all pavement inventory is assessed for their distresses and associated conditions. The conditions are then documented for analysis. Once evaluated and rated, the pavements are further divided into categories by condition and grouped according to how they are to be scheduled.
Commercial Pavement Management
The first tendency may be to expend money on pavements with the worst conditions. However, the best practice is to utilize your maintenance budget in the first segment of a pavement’s lifespan. This is because if the pavement degrades below fair condition, most of its useful service life is over. Preventive maintenance or pavement rehab options instead of reconstruction can significantly reduce costs.
Overlays & Resurfacing
Asphalt resurfacing and structural overlay projects are next on the IMS. Maintenance significantly prolongs a pavement’s lifespan by improving or restoring structural strength and protecting the underlying pavement structure. This type of maintenance may often be repeated during a pavement’s lifecycle.
However, the opportunity can be lost if deterioration continues and pavements fall into disrepair; timing can be crucial.
Once completing preventive and resurfacing, scheduling the reconstruction projects is next. Pavements in advanced deterioration are not good projects for resurfacing/or structural overlays. The cost of reconstruction may not significantly change year over year, so it may be best to maintain serviceable conditions with minor repairs for these candidates.
Once set up, your Integrated Plan for commercial pavement management should help you track and review your pavement inventories and their condition, check for safety hazards and determine if any issues have developed. A three-year re-evaluation program is practical but adjusting should be done accordingly.
