Conquer Potholes with Pavement Management

February 21, 2023 | Larry Stevens

HR Green understands that every community is unique and has specific needs when it comes to municipal transportation engineering. That‘s why we take a tailored approach, creating individualized Pavement Management Plans designed to apply the right treatment, to the right pavement, at just the right time for optimal roadway maintenance planning.

Potholes are so often the most complained about infrastructure concerns. Nobody enjoys these severe pavement distresses, and so often, the blame falls on the city. But it’s not just you. Municipalities all over the country are losing the battle to maintain their pavements. Outdated methods of maintaining transportation infrastructure and extremely limited funding have naturally led to decades worth of deferred roadway repairs.

HR Green’s pavement management services can help. Roadway maintenance is all about applying the right treatment to the right pavement at the right time. When you invest in your roads in a strategic and timely manner, it can extend their usable service lives while making the best use of potentially limited public funds. Our experienced civil engineers have many years of experience helping agencies of all sizes.

We use a data-driven, scenario-based road maintenance planning process to help optimize budgets and select projects in an objective manner that maximizes the benefit to you and your citizens. We recognize that each community is unique in its individual needs, so we tailor each program to suit your specific situation.

Our tailored approach to client solutions includes:

  • Assessing your roadway assets to better understand existing needs. 
  • Incorporate best roadway management practices that leverage our research and experience to assess whether your repair methods, design standards, and construction specifications provide the tools needed to maximize the value of each dollar spent.
  • Working with you to set budgets and goals, as well as create a decision-making framework to make those hard choices in the likely case that your needs exceed your available resources.

This pavement management process may involve implementing a software solution. In this case, HR Green can provide training for your staff, as well as ongoing support. Often this results in a compelling case for increased transportation infrastructure expenditures, and our team may even be able to help your department find other funding opportunities to meet any gaps you may have. In the end, we will provide you with a prioritized capital improvement plan unique to your city and then help track its performance over time.

Additionally, we can help foster trust and transparency in your pavement management program by engaging directly with your community via public involvement methods like website pages, project maps, newsletter updates, and more.

Whether you’re just getting started or need long-term assistance, HR Green wants to help you prolong the life of your pavement and reduce your long-term maintenance costs because nobody likes potholes. Learn more about how we can help you manage your pavement assets.
