About the research

The objective of this research is to evaluate the type, accuracy, and timeliness of information collected in the Iowa DOT’s pavement management information system (PMIS) regarding in-service pavements. Based on this, recommendations will be made with respect to updating the PMIS with more current field survey and testing data to facilitate the implementation of the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide.
