Abstract

The purpose of this research is to evaluate the running surface of the main streets of downtown Lima, using the Pavement Condition Index (PCI), in addition to using the methodology called Pavement Management System (PMS), such as support for the calculation of costs related to the deterioration of the aforementioned routes. As a result of the investigation, around 1,600 failures were found, of which approximately 60% were caused by human effects (anthropogenic failures), the main responsibility being the Public Service Companies, and, meaning the coffers municipalities in charge of road maintenance, an extra cost of more than 73% in the annual budget, even though age or weathering were not the cause of its deterioration.
