About us

Our mission

GoodRoads, LLC was founded in July, 2016 and is registered with the North Carolina Secretary of State. Our company mission is to reverse the declining quality of road infrastructure in America. We believe roads are the veins that bring vitality to our economy. They deliver us our health, education, food and recreation. Roads are fundamentally necessary to support our way of life.

Our passion

We recognize the woeful lack of funding to support our road infrastructure. We also believe that the job of maintaining roads is a difficult one, with a dearth of adequate tools for pavement managers to be effective at their jobs. And finally, we believe that pavement managers are left isolated from one another and from the public, of which so few understand the importance of what a pavement manager does. These observations are the basis for the GoodRoads approach to turning our road infrastructure failings around.

Our focus

We focus not on the funding, but on the technology and community around maintaining roads. We believe if we get these two aspects right, the funding issue will naturally be addressed as well. Our goal is to be a core part of Smart Town initiatives across the nation.

Our tech

Our technology includes a portable electronic device for image- and roughness-based road data collection, data science to identify trends in road decay and effective maintenance strategies, and a cloud application for budgeting and prioritizing repavement projects.

Our team

Founder and CEO, Chris Sunde, has 11 years of industry experience. He is joined by a team of five experts that includes a Principal Data Scientist, an AI Developer, a Hardware Engineer, an iPhone Developer and a User Experience Designer.
