Road maintenance is considered as one of the major and important factors in the pavement management system (PMS). Regarding the type of data collection in this study, the observation method based on index PCI (Pavement Condition Index) according to ASTM D6433 standard was used. Research aims to assess the priority of road maintenance using the Pavement Condition Index (PCI). Locations for this research were the roads at the EMU campus to length 10 km in Northern Cyprus and 16 road segments were taken from each district. There were 9 distress types that had been recorded. We intend to add to this project a new dimension by analyzing the EMU campus road. The results of the research as obtained from the method of PCI and prioritization can be identified as follows: five road segments are in good condition, four are satisfactory, six are in fair condition, one is in a failed condition, and one road segment is in serious condition. In total, 15 of 16 road segments are in stable condition. The result generally indicates that the road was 80.63% in satisfactory condition. In general, it can be concluded that road pavements are constantly exposed to various types of stresses such as heavy traffic load, temperature, humidity and bed soil displacement, which over time lead to damage such as cracks in the Alligator cracking, Patching and Utility cut, Block cracking, Long and Trans cracking, Rutting, and Asphalt Bleeding are in the pavement. Patching and Utility cut, Alligator cracking and Long and Trans cracking were assessed as the most severe.
