Abstract

The operation and maintenance of highway network in Iraq continuously worsens in spite of the efforts and expenditures to improve their serviceability. The main reasons of highways network failure are the fast appearance and increase in the intensity of deformation with the absence of periodical maintenance. The objective of this research is to estimate the condition of flexible pavement through visual surveys using the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) method and can provides an easy way to calculate the PCI based on GIS data with Micro PAVER software 5.2. Ten roads (8 internal and 2 external) in Al-Kut city in the middle of Iraq were surveyed. The results were shown that three roads are in poor condition while others in fair and good condition. 117 sections of the study area are in good condition while 61 and 65 sections are in fair and poor condition respectively. It is important to create an annual road deteriorations database system and the resulting change in the PCI values which occurs every year.

Keywords: Pavement Condition Index (PCI), GIS, Micro PAVER
