Experience:

Steve’s career included solving pavement related issues on projects from Peru to Alaska and New York to Diego Garcia and ultimately led to growing LaBelle Consultants to the present LaBelle Marvin, providing pavement analysis, design and construction services.

During his 46 year career, Steve has evaluated pavements which support routine highway traffic and unique loadings associated with airfields, sea ports, race tracks, dedicated Rubber Tired Transit facilities, the Space Shuttle, permit loads of the LACMA ‘rock’, decommissioned generators from San Onofre and disassembled railroad engines transported along local roadways.  He has shepherded transitions in asphalt binders from penetration grading, to aged residue grading to performance grading and worked in designing asphalt concrete materials which included use of ground rubber, ground glass, fiber reinforcing materials, various waste materials, recycled asphalt concrete millings, and most recently roofing industry waste materials. 

Evaluating over 25,000 lane miles of roadways has presented Steve with the opportunity work with a team of professionals dedicated to extending the life of pavements throughout the region.  Special understanding gained over his career enables Steve and LMI to analyze pavement behavior, and define the cause and most cost effective method of mitigating pavement distresses. Steve has shared his knowledge of pavement performance and evaluation speaking at countless seminars organized by the ASCE, American Public Works Association, League of California Cities, Asphalt Pavement Association, California Asphalt Pavement Association, Chip Seal and Slurry Seal associations, AIA, and Property Management Associations.  Steve has also taught classes in pavement design and asphalt concrete design at CSULB, CSULA, UCI, and within the local community colleges.
