NRMCA Releases Model Legislation for Pavement Life-Cycle Cost Analysis

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA has developed model legislation for use by state, city and county officials with the purpose of encouraging Life-Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) for pavement type selection. NRMCA supports a balanced and competitive transportation infrastructure investment program - a mix of concrete and asphalt pavements - so that citizens receive increased value, safety and sustainability for fewer tax dollars. For transportation infrastructure projects, transportation and public works agencies should select pavements based on data-driven design and cost considerations utilizing life-cycle costing methodologies.

The model legislation also includes introductory discussion points on pertinent details so that advocates and promoters can effectively communicate with government officials. At the local level, the legislation language may be modified for use in code or as an ordinance.

The model legislation may be downloaded from the Concrete Promoters’ Resource Center Web page. For more information regarding Concrete Street and Local Road Pavement Design and Construction Assistance, contact NRMCA’s Brian Killingsworth at
