167511-1 Report Abstract

This report describes the development of an integrated management system for urban transportation infrastructure. The developed system integrates pavements and bridges at both network and project level management.

A computer program was developed as a result of this study. The developed computer program is user-friendly and takes full advantage of Graphical User Interface (GUI) technology. In addition, a combined priority index was developed to compare pavements and bridges on the same scale. In developing this index, the variables that are common to both pavements and bridges were used including: 1) Traffic, 2) Condition, 3) Width, and 4) Age.
