practitioners who are interested in adopting preservation into strategic business practices include:
• Be able to quantify the effects of preservation on pavement performance, starting with the definition
and selection of the right performance measures and associated pavement condition metrics, triggers
and thresholds.
• Follow a four-step procedure to support the pavement preservation decision-making processes.
• Explore ways a Pavement Management System can be used to select pavement preservation
treatments as well as approaches for using pavement preservation to inform the asset management
process.
