Assessing Infrastructure Integrity with the FastFWD in Boulder, Colorado

At the core of every robust infrastructure lies a foundation built on structural integrity. We are proud to partner with Boulder County in Colorado on their Fast-Falling Weight Deflectometer (FastFWD) project to help assess and fortify their pavement structures.

Why Structural Testing Matters

Structural testing is not just about a checkbox in the pavement management process; it is a cornerstone of sound pavement management decisions! Imagine constructing a building without ensuring its foundation can bear the weight or withstand the elements. This is the equivalent of neglecting pavement structural assessments. Every inch of pavement carries the weight of countless journeys, and that is why ICC-IMS is committed to providing comprehensive structural testing services.

Empowering Infrastructure Confidence

With FastFWD, pavement management projects are empowered with a tool that simulates real-world conditions at an unprecedented pace. The FastFWD’s ability to deliver load pulses like rolling vehicle wheels, at a rate five times faster than its predecessor, sets a new standard in structural evaluation. By quickly measuring pavement deflection, FastFWD provides critical insights into load-carrying capacity and remaining service life, enabling the county to optimize design and construction practices.

Precision in Action

ICC-IMS is committed to precision beyond speed. Strict quality control measures are adhered to, ensuring every data point collected passes thorough checks. From surface temperature thresholds to PCI (pavement condition index) survey notifications, no stone is left unturned in guaranteeing the accuracy and reliability of assessments. We understand the challenges posed by weather fluctuations, and adaptable approaches ensure timely and dependable results, even in dynamic conditions.

Driving Longevity Through Data

At the center of our structural analysis lies a commitment to long-term pavement management. By integrating deflection survey data and conducting detailed structural analyses, agencies are provided with invaluable insights to prioritize maintenance interventions effectively. Whether it is a lightweight treatment or complete reconstruction, these recommendations are rooted in enhancing roadway safety, and longevity, as well as safeguarding investments for generations to come.

Join Us in Paving the Way Forward

In Boulder County and beyond, FastFWD projects are not just about testing pavement. It is about improving infrastructure integrity. Let us build and maintain with confidence, knowing that every road constructed is built to last, withstand the elements, and pave the way for safer, smoother journeys ahead!
