9 analysis.
10     (a) As used in this Section, "life-cycle cost" means the
11 total of the cost of the initial project plus all anticipated
12 costs for subsequent maintenance, repair, or resurfacing over

1 cost analysis for each State road project under its
2 jurisdiction for which the total pavement costs exceed $500,000
3 funded in whole, or in part, with State or State appropriated
4 funds. The Department shall design and award these paving
5 projects utilizing material having the lowest life-cycle cost.
6 All pavement design life shall ensure that State and State
7 appropriated funds are utilized as efficiently as possible.
8 When alternative material options are substantially equivalent
9 on a life-cycle cost basis, the Department may make a decision
10 based on other criteria. At the discretion of the Department,
11 interstate highways with high traffic volumes or experimental
12 projects may be exempt from this requirement.
13     (c) Except as otherwise provided in this Section, a
14 life-cycle cost analysis shall compare equivalent designs
15 based upon this State's actual historic project maintenance,
16 repair, and resurfacing schedules and costs as recorded by the
17 pavement management system, and may include estimates of user
18 costs throughout the entire pavement life.
19     (d) For pavement projects for which this State has no
20 actual historic project maintenance, repair, and resurfacing
21 schedules and costs as recorded by the pavement management
22 system, the Department may use actual historical and comparable
23 data for equivalent designs from states with similar climates,
24 soil structures, or vehicle traffic.
