Keeping up to date with municipal road ratings and pavement management requires both organization and experience. The Town of Waukesha has utilized the services of Ruekert & Mielke, Inc. (R/M) for their pavement management needs, recognizing R/M's tested approach to providing quality pavement management programs to communities in Wisconsin and Illinois.
R/M's engineers and field services crew helps the Town develop an annual road program that meets the Town's needs and budget. In cooperation with Town Staff, R/M prepares bidding documents for paving projects and administers those contracts throughout construction to ensure the Town roads are repaired correctly.
Additionally, R/M assists the Town of Waukesha with their road ratings every other year when they are due. These ratings can be further analyzed to develop the pavement management plan. This includes annual mileage certification for new or improved roads, certifying the number of miles of streets the Town has. With R/M's help, the Town can feel secure knowing that their pavement management program is in good hands.
