As one of the most popular preventive maintenance methods, crack sealing and filling (CS/CF) has been widely used by state highway agencies. Due to stringent highway budgets and the lack of work forces in state highway agencies, it is urgent that CS/CF, as well as other types of pavement preservation methods, be incorporated in a pavement management system (PMS). For this purpose, this research project proposed a systematic framework to study the cost-effectiveness of CS/CF and incorporate CS/CF planning in a PMS.
