Maximizing IRI Scores With MOBA-Matic

For most, IRI has been the leading standard for how this is evaluated. Let's break down what IRI scores are, why they’re important, and how MOBA-Matic helps asphalt paving contractors get top-notch results and earn bonuses.

Get The Best IRI Scores

Smooth, long-lasting roads are the sign of award-winning asphalt paving contractors—one key measure of how smooth a road is the International Roughness Index (IRI).

What Are IRI Scores?

The International Roughness Index (IRI) is one key to measuring the smoothness of a road. It’s usually measured in meters per kilometer (m/km) or inches per mile (in/mi). IRI gives a consistent way to check and compare how bumpy roads are. Lower IRI values mean smoother roads, which is what everyone wants.

Why IRI Scores Are Important

  • Better Ride Quality and Safety: Smoother roads make for a more comfortable drive and can help prevent accidents caused by rough surfaces.
  • Longer-Lasting Roads: Roads with low IRI scores are usually more durable and need less frequent repairs, which saves time and money.
  • Cost Savings: Keeping IRI scores low can reduce the costs linked to road repairs and vehicle damage.
  • Meeting Standards: Many areas have set IRI standards that roads need to meet. Contractors have to hit these targets to avoid penalties and get their projects approved.
  • Earning Bonuses: Contractors can earn bonuses to achieve exceptional smoothness. Many contracts include incentives for low IRI scores and rewarding contractors for top-quality work.
