County of Orange Pavement Management System and Sustainable Treatment Program Clark Shen, Manager OC Construction Materials Lab Krishna Nadaraja, Senior Civil Engineer, OC Construction Materials Lab
Pavement Management System History Orange County’s PMS system (OCPMS) was one of the first in the nation and was developed in 1982 under the direction of the County’s Board of Supervisors with the objective “to develop a systematic methodology for determining roadway conditions, to define rehabilitation strategies, and to establish a process where preventative mode of maintenance work is planned and performed on all paved unincorporated County roads.” The result was OCPMS, and by 1991 the backlog of streets in need of immediate repair was eliminated-- $5 million under budget and a year earlier than anticipated.
Pavement Management System Network The County’s PMS Unit currently maintains: 320 County Road Miles 60 miles Arterials 260 miles Locals 1,921 individual street segments 280 Road Miles for contract cities County’s Current PCI: 74

MicroPAVER™ Software In 2011, as mandated by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), all local and city governments in Orange County were required to use MicroPAVER™ in order to receive Measure M funding for all road projects.
A laser survey profilometer measures surface distresses. Orange County’s roadway network is surveyed biennially. Due to the size of the County’s roadway network, semi-automated vehicles are used to track distresses. Pavement Evaluations
County Pavement Treatments / Administration Crack Sealing Asphalt Overlay (ARHM)* Slurry Seal (TRMSS) Job Order Contracting Reconstruction *All County Overlay projects use Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP)

Subgrade Stabilization Any subgrade stabilization recommendations for paving projects are provided by the OC Construction Materials Lab:
Lessons Learned The systematic approach of using less expensive cyclic maintenance (slurry seals) has deterred future deterioration and reduced and stabilized budget expenditures. Annual street evaluations to determine pavement condition is an essential part of the system and provides current usable information to determine which streets require maintenance or are showing signs of rapid deterioration. Preventative maintenance in the early stages of pavement distress is less costly than major repairs after the street has already failed.
