Lockwood shared, “We’re honored to be under contract with Clinton Twp., and look forward to partnering with the Township’s Public Services Director, Mary Bednar, and her team as together we serve the administration, businesses and citizens of the Township.”
He added, “We’re proud to include Clinton Township, which is Michigan’s tenth largest municipality, in the portfolio of clients we’re privileged to serve. Including the Township, our team now serves 29 municipalities, and a number of private clients, throughout Southeast Michigan.”
AEW completed a “PASER” study for the Township in November, 2018. PASER stands for Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating System, and road sections are visually inspected for defects based on a scale of 1 to 10. A rating of 1 is a road in failed condition, and a rating of 10 is a road in excellent condition. The system was developed by the Michigan Transportation Asset Management Council, and is widely used by communities and road agencies across the state to evaluate the roads and develop maintenance plans.
The Township has created an interactive dashboard that includes historical PASER ratings from 2009 and the recent 2018 ratings. The dashboard provides a clear understanding of the evolving condition of the road system within the Township.
The study was funded by a SEMCOG grant, and has been accepted by local, state and federal agencies. It will serve to facilitate the management and planning of future capital improvements as the Township seeks to rehabilitate/replace deteriorating roadways.
The 28.2 square mile Township, settled in 1782, organized in 1818, and chartered in 1989, is home to more than 100,000 residents, the largest Township by population in Michigan, and celebrated its 200th Anniversary in 2018.
We thank Clinton Township administrators for their confidence in our team, and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship as together we serve this great community.
