Back to all projects

In the spring of 2017, WMSRDC will begin the process of collecting data for its annual Asset Management program. Each year, WMSRDC staff, along with Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and a county road commission employee, collect this data for approximately half of all the federal aid roads within Region 14. The data collection effort requires the collection of three items: PASER rating, surface type, and the number of lanes. PASER is a visual rating assessment system that rates the road surface condition for a given segment on a scale of 1-10.

During the year 2016, WMSRDC collected 1202 miles worth of data, taking approximately 10 working days to complete all counties. Results for 2016 are:

Lake County: Approximately 140 miles rated:
26.004 Miles Good Condition
