Abstract : This report is designed as an aid for the individual performing pavement inspections as part of an overall pavement maintenance and repair system. The types of distress found in asphalt- and concrete-surfaced pavements are presented; severity levels for each distress type are established and illustrated. The severity levels were based on the effect of the distress on maintenance and repair needs and priorities, ride quality, safety, and structural integrity.
