It was the concensus of the workshop participants that there were many questions of critical importance to financing and managing the nation's highways that could only be answered by a continuing monitoring effort. This appears to be the only way to successfully study the primary effects of mixed traffic and environment on the performance of pavemens. The need for flexibility in experimental design offered by a mix of in-service highways, special design sections, and accelerated mechanical testing was recognized. There was strong opinion that active management from a central organization, independent of government agencies subject to political change, would be required for the success of a long-term pavement monitoring program. It was concluded that the major results from this effort would be improved prediction and design models to more effectively manage the nation's highway system.
