Pavement management is the process of overseeing the maintenance and repair of one or multiple parking lots. The two key benefits of performing pavement management are improved pavement conditions and reduced maintenance costs. Essentially, with any parking lot, the key is to maintain the pavement in good condition (at a relatively low cost) for as long as possible before utilizing more expensive structural remedies such as resurfacing or reconstruction.
To help organize the process of pavement management, it is helpful to develop a plan of action. Pavement Management Planning or PMP is a systematic, long-term approach in optimizing pavement maintenance that ties together various maintenance options in one plan based on available funding. Through this proven, six-step process, parking lots can be managed effectively over an extended period of time, thus prolonging the functionality of the structure. This article will discuss the six steps utilized in an effective PMP and an actual plan of approach for a portfolio of retail stores.
