The paper reviews the role of highway functional classification in pavement management. Predominantly, technical classification is used in pavement management in CIS countries. The paper raises importance of highway functional classification in pavement maintenance in order to efficiently manage road network. IRI roughness index is widely used to monitor, assess road condition, analyze life cycle of the pavement. Authors proposed IRI values according to highway functional classification.
