Abstract

Municipalities and governmental agencies continue to mainly rely on responsive treatments such as road resurfacing or reconstruction which are costly. This study found that there is a knowledge gap about the long-term economic benefits of preventive treatments at the road network level. To address this knowledge gap, this study presents a long-term and life cycle economic feasibility analysis of implementing preventive treatments for a municipal highway. This paper examines three main aspects: (1) the effectiveness of preventive maintenance treatments, (2) the degree of cost reduction associated with different types of preventive treatments, and (3) the extent of preventive treatment required to achieve the desired effect. According to the analysis, the combination of preventive maintenance and rehabilitation treatments can result in a substantial decrease of 34% in overall expenses over a 30-year timeframe, regardless of the preventive types.
