The Pavement Condition Index PCI procedure was used to evaluate five alternatives for repairing the runway of the Amedee Air Strip, Sierra Army Depot, California. Based on the PCI analysis, it was recommended that the old surface be recycled and used as a base, with a new asphalt concrete surface added to a depth of 3 inches at the central 75 feet and tapered to 1 inch at the edges. This recommendation was based on the assumption that the engineer has flexibility in specifying the type and grade of asphalt needed. If not, reconstruction with concrete may be economically justified based on life cycle costs. Author
