It is necessary to provide good road network for the development of country. India has second largest highway and roadway networks system in the world. Due to unexpected economic development in the any region, the traffic loads on the road may increase at a rapid rate. The pavements also undergo higher distress due to increased wheel loads and load repetitions. There is great need for the effective and efficient management and maintenance of the road network. For the maintenance work pavement evaluation is crucial. In the present work, an attempt is made to evaluate the structural and functional condition of the existing flexible pavements. A network of 11 km coming under Vadodara District was selected and extensive field, laboratory investigation, pavement analysis were carried out based on the maintenance priority. The field work consists of road inventory, traffic studies, and Bump Integrator studies. PCI was computed based on the selected distress parameters i.e. patch, pothole, cracks, hungry surface, area of deflection etc. In addition, IRI and characteristic pavement deflections were computed from Bump Integrator. Based on PCI, IRI and deflection values suggestions given for remedial measures for particular distress.
