In this study, three road rating systems were assessed and compared after
carefully applying them to five major road case studies. The essence of these rating systems
is to provide a consistent, reasonably objective and systematic approach for establishing
priorities and scheduling and budgeting roadway rehabilitation requirements. The
effectiveness of these systems was measured during the road condition survey and
compared with one another. The most effective system out of the three was determined
based on the different types and severity levels of pavement distresses identified for the five
different routes.
