Pavement Modeling

Pavement Authority by WithersRavenel helps you identify and communicate infrastructure needs to inform  stakeholders. Our experts use hard data to help your community make important decisions about pavement conditions and infrastructure.

Through our expertise and experience, we provide you with ample infrastructure solutions to achieve a better quality road network tailored to your community’s operating budget. 

We help you tell the story of your roadways with detailed visualizations, graphs, and maps:

  • Voters: Demonstrate the need for increased funding to provide the road quality they demand.
  • Elected officials: have the data to prioritize and balance infrastructure funding against police, fire, parks, and other municipal needs.
  • Planners: Build better roads for the same budget with new treatment, rehabilitation, and long-term planning options.


See the future. Make informed decisions. Influence stakeholders. Pavement Authority gives you data and insights to future-proof your road network.

Yelm does not have the resources available to adequately rate the condition of its pavement system, nor the ability or expertise to perform a life-cycle analysis. WithersRavenel prepared a concise summary of the City’s street inventory, overall condition of the roadway network, asset value, maintenance needs, and cost summary in an easy to follow format. The Project Manager, Steve Lander, was in continuous communication with the City, providing updates as to when the rating crew would be arriving on site, during the process of obtaining field data, and throughout the report preparation phase. Yelm would recommend WithersRavenel’s services to others. These services were performed exactly as promised, on time, and on budget.
