There are many different treatment types available for preservation and rehabilitation of roadways. The Steuben County Highway Department is continuously evaluating our pavement management practices and refining our treatment types to provide more durable and longer lasting pavements. Utilizing the Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating System (PASER), Steuben County is able to gather and analyze road condition data for efficient pavement management practices. Each pavement treatment method is analyzed based on performance, cost, and feasibility of application. To gain a better understanding of the various treatment types currently available and implemented, please utilize the navigation pane on the left.
The video below from the Minnesota Local Road Research Board explains why roads go bad and why sometimes the worst roads aren't fixed first.
