Pavement Preservation for Local Road Agencies
Training, support, and resources to solve the toughest pavement management problems
A Serious Problem
Pavement is the largest, most valuable asset in any county, city, town or village. But most agencies treat their streets and highways as if they're disposable; they let the pavement deteriorate until it fails, and then they reconstruct. This is the "worst-first" approach . . . (more)
A Simple Solution
Two words: pavement preservation. On a typical pavement deterioration curve it's easy to see why preservation works. Keep the good roads good; it's as simple as that. But making the change at your agency can be challenging. Transportation Asset Management (TAM) is the key.

Since retiring as director of the Center for Technology & Training (CTT) and the Michigan Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) at Michigan Tech University in 2010, Terry has been exploring methods for bringing online training into the fields of transportation and public works. His primary expertise involves roadway asset management, the use of the PASER pavement condition evaluation method and pre disaster asset condition documentation. He has conducted workshops for the LTAP programs in Louisiana and Indiana, and as far away as Kabul, Afghanistan as part of a United Nations project.
Training & Support That Gets Results
Real people making a lasting difference with transportation asset management
When I look for training for road agencies in Indiana, I consider two factors: the trainer and the delivery platform. In this case, both are top-notch. Terry's thorough knowledge of asset management from many perspectives is a huge benefit for local agencies and the industry. The online training format, organized into short segments, is convenient, accessible, and enjoyable to watch.

Easy to Understand
Terry was instrumental in helping us develop and launch our Asset Management program in 2004. With the program in place, our townships have funded between $2.5 and $3.5 million per year in improvements. They look forward to the annual report on the progress in improving the roads for their residents. We thank Terry for making Asset Management easy to understand and easy to explain to others.

Terry is very knowledgeable and he teaches the material in a way that helps technical and non-technical people make good decisions together.
The pavement management system that we had in place did not enable us to evaluate our roads in any meaningful way. The PASER Method will allow us to more closely define the actual pavement condition and use this information to formulate a very effective pavement management program.

I usually have to drive 150 miles round-trip to attend asset management training. I can't tell you how much I appreciate having it available online!
