The City of Kentwood maintains the highest-rated major street network in Kent County according to hard data compiled by the Grand Valley Metro Council, which is based on PASER ratings.

The PASER scale is a 1-10 rating system for road pavement condition developed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Transportation Information Center. PASER uses visual inspection to evaluate pavement surface conditions. PASER ratings provide a basis for comparing the quality of roadway segments. You can view an interactive map showing Kentwood’s PASER ratings year by year here.

The Michigan Transportation Asset Management Council, or TAMC, is another resource for independent, objective data on the condition of Michigan's roads and bridges and a resource for implementing the concepts of Asset Management. TAMC’s interactive maps can be found here.
