Abstract: Many pavements and surfacing types are available for road engineers to choose from. The selection of pavement structure, either flexible or rigid, should be based mainly on construction and life cycle cost analysis. However, a number of factors should be considered such as past performance, materials and machinery availability, and contractor?s capability. In the selection of road surfacing, many new and conventional mixes are available to choose from; such as stone mastic asphalt (SMA), porous asphalt, and polymer modified asphalt asphaltic concrete (A, C), and conventional asphalt. The factors such as technical factors or economic factors will be used to decide which pavement type to be constructed. It is the aim of this project to study the cost factors affecting choosing between two types of pavements, asphaltic concrete pavement and SMA pavement. The study was done by collecting information through a questionnaire that was distributed to highway companies in Selangor, Malaysia, the study shows that the initial cost for asphaltic concrete pavement is higher than the initial cost for SMA pavement. However, for long life, a comparison of the cost shows that the asphaltic concrete pavement has a low compared with the SMA pavement
