    Abstract

    This report describes the preliminary development of a pavement condition index (PCI) for rating jointed concrete and asphalt-surfaced roads and streets. The PCI, which measures pavement structural integrity and surface operational conditions, is calculated by measuring pavement distress types, severities, and densities obtained during pavement inspection. The PCI procedure presented in this report will be further field-tested and verified. (Author)
