"Michigan's roads are deteriorating at an increasingly rapid rate.  Allowing this trend to continue will have significant financial and economic consequences.  For example, the cost of returning a poor road to good condition is four to five times greater than the cost of maintaining a road in fair condition.  Allowing more roads to reach poor condition will dramatically increase the costs of repairing Michigan's road network."

-- TAMC 

 

Asset management is about more than just roads! While most data gathered so far has been on pavement surface conditions, asset management is about tracking all of your community's major capital investments, from sewer and water infrastructure to sidewalks, signage, and culverts.

Check out http://www.drivemi.org/ for information about the investments needed in Michigan's roads, bridges, and public transit.  Information specific to Berrien County will be coming soon.  The Drive Michigan campaign is a project of the County Road Association of Michigan (CRAM), which has a variety of resources about county roads in Michigan.

 

Michigan's Transportation Asset Management Council (TAMC) coordinates a regular survey of pavement condition on all federal aid eligible roads in Michigan.  Click here to read the annual reports published by the Transportation Asset Management Council, which show the statewide trends in pavement condition. 

 

The Southwest Michigan Planning Commission has partnered with TAMC, MDOT, and the county road commissions for Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren counties to conduct a pavement condition survey of all federal aid eligible roads in the three counties since 2003.  The reports for each county can be downloaded at the links below.
