FACT: One-third of all fatal and serious traffic crashes are due at least in part to poor road conditions.

Michigan Road Condition Map

PASER map of road conditions

You see the poor condition of Michigan’s roads and bridges as you drive around our state – but now, you can view which roads are in the worst condition from the comfort of your own home.

We can potentially save 1,000 lives over the next 10 years if we improve the condition of our roads and bridges.

The State of Michigan’s Transportation Asset Management Council now has a map online showing PASER ratings, a visual survey used to evaluate the condition of roads. PASER assigns ratings based on the condition of pavement around the state, on a 0-10 scale (with ratings under 5 considered to be “poor” condition, ratings of 5-7 considered to be “fair,” and ratings above 7 considered “good”).
