The purpose of this study is to determine the most efficient and ideal weight factors by performing the Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) using the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s (NCDOT) Pavement Management System (PMS) and using the ideal weight factors. Constraints such as treatment cost, NCDOT Rating Number and Budget Group is considered while performing the CBA in the PMS. There are thirty-three sets of weight factors and each one is analyzed by performing CBA for 5 years, for 14 Divisions and four systems, i.e., Interstates, U.S, NC & Secondary Routes (SR). The ideal weight factors are the ones that yield the least total treatment cost. Then using the ideal set of weight factors, the CBA is performed for all the 14 Divisions individually once again, and the project cost for the four system is calculated. The percentage of funds to be allocated for each Division according to the fund types and regional classification is calculated. This framework will help in allocating the maintenance funds according to the systems and its Division for a specific year. Such analysis can be used in identifying the most effective and cost-saving treatment for a roadway network and the available funds can be utilized in such a manner that maximum benefit can be achieved.
