What is the importance of pavement preservation?

Federal Highway Administration guidance describes preservation as work that is planned and performed to improve or sustain the condition of the transportation facility in a state of good repair.  Preservation efforts extend the life of pavement, keep road conditions safe, and are significantly less costly than rehabilitation or reconstruction.  Preservation ensures that roads last longer with preventative maintenance and can help to avoid more expensive rebuilds.
