Back to all projects

In the summer of 2018, WMSRDC completed 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 2018, WMSRDC collected 1879.72 miles worth of data, taking approximately 15 working days to complete all counties.
