In this example, a protocol is created that includes all local roadways. The protocol recommends the following activities:

  • Overlay if the road's Estimated OCI falls between 21 and 45. Once performed, this activity should skip 2 years before being performed again and funds come from the Major Activities budget.
  • Patch every 3 years from the Minor Activities budget.
  • Crack Seal for asphalt roads once for the Scenario from the Minor Activities budget.

These activity recommendations are defined as triggers under the local roadways protocol.
