2017 Road Asset Management Plan
City Engineering firm Hubbell, Roth, & Clark, Inc., (HRC) has prepared an Asset Management Plan (AMP) for the City of Wixom’s public roadway system. This AMP has been approved by the Transportation Asset Management Council (TAMC). The TAMC reports directly to the Michigan State Transportation Commission. The activities of the TAMC are supported by the Michigan Department of Transportation. Among its duties, the TAMC supports the development of asset management methodologies and the use of asset management principles and procedures.
This plan has taken the Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating (PASER) system, which was conducted in September 2015. A new PASER study will be conducted this summer and reported in September 2018. The PASER study established a methodology to help City staff budget for future road projects. Once the PASER evaluations were made, repairs for each of the roads were assessed and estimated. HRC then identified the value of each of the repairs and establish a multi-year improvement plan to address the road concerns. The AMP is based on the following tasks:
1. Assess current conditions
2. Create a mix of fixes, estimated costs and funding levels
3. Predict future conditions and develop performance measures and targets
4. Conduct a tradeoff analysis and identify candidate projects
5. Set priorities and develop a multi-year capital improvement plan
6. Report results
Using this plan, City staff will continue to plan projects for maintenance of the roads and roadway replacements. The AMP will allow the City to more freely finance these projects utilizing Act 51 (gas tax) money.
Work on West Road has begun and is expected to last through September. The road is only open to westbound traffic during construction; eastbound traffic is detoured. Please plan on delays when traveling through this area.
