Pavement Asset Design and Management Guide (2013)

This Guide is a consolidation of Canadian pavement design and management practices. It provides a theoretical understanding of issues, a summary of best practices and is intended to be applicable across Canada for varying conditions and jurisdictions. Tools for the management of transportation infrastructure assets are included.

The Guide emphasizes routine maintenance and preservation as important aspects of pavement management. Key industry issues such as sustainability, climate change and new innovations are highlighted. Low volume road design and management is addressed. The Guide explicitly highlights provincial practices in addition to municipal practices. State-of-the-art is explored and future opportunities are identified throughout the Guide.

The document is a guide rather than a comprehensive design manual and each of its fifteen chapters provides numerous additional resources for further reference.

The Guide is intended for a diverse range of users, practitioners and managers. Academic users will find this Guide a valuable reference. The private and public sector will use the Guide as a design and management tool, particularly when training new technologists, engineers and managers.

This Guide replaces the previous version, Pavement Design and Management Guide (1997).
