Michigan Transportation Asset Management Council Releases the 2018 Annual Road & Bridge Report
Posted on May 6, 2019 by
The Michigan Transportation Asset Management Council (TAMC) delivered the Michigan 2018 Annual Road and Bridge Report to the Michigan Legislature, the State Transportation Commission and the Michigan Infrastructure Council (MIC).
During 2018, the TAMC rated the pavement condition of the paved federal-aid eligible roads for the fourteenth consecutive year. The 2018 condition data indicates 41% of these roads are in poor condition, 38% are in fair condition, and 21% are in good condition; in 2017, the breakdown was 40% poor, 40% fair, and 20% good.
The report also includes data on the condition of all bridges in Michigan. An analysis of the bridge condition data indicates that bridge owners are “losing ground” due to an aging inventory and rising costs for repair and replacement. This year’s report reveals Michigan has 10.7% of bridges rated as “structurally deficient.”
This effort was achieved through a cooperative effort of individuals from the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), city and village and county road agencies, in coordination with regional planning agencies, and metropolitan planning organizations.
