Massachusetts airports are key connections in the Commonwealth transportation system and proven assets in the state’s economy. The airports’ largest capital investment is basic: pavement. Pavements must be maintained properly for the safety of travel, and delay of maintenance drives up the cost of repair.
MassDOT’s Aeronautics Division in recognizing the need to protect this critical investment has established a statewide airport pavement management system to monitor the condition of the Massachusetts airport infrastructure and to proactively plan for its preservation. The system’s goal is to provide the airports, state, and the Federal Aviation Administration with information that identifies pavement-related needs in order to prioritize necessary repairs over the next several years.
During this project, pavement conditions at 33 Massachusetts airports were assessed and information placed into a database. Visit the web to view details of the findings for each airport in the Pavement Management System Report.
