An attempt was made to implement a Pavement Management System (PMS) for the Town of West Warwick, Rhode Island as an initial step to develop an infrastructure asset management system. The MicroPAVER 3.2 was utilized to provide decision makers with a practical tool for the prioritization of roads and streets for cost-effective Maintenance and Repair (M&R) alternatives. A set of preliminary M&R criteria was developed based on pavement rank, minimum Pavement Condition Index (PCI) values, which are computed by MicroPAVER program using visual inspection data of roads in the network, and construction constraints. Using these criteria, optimal M&R strategies were selected and a preliminary budget analysis was performed. Two alternatives of five year M&R plans were developed for the town council's consideration.
