Pavement Condition Surveys

PAVEMENT CONDITION SURVEY
PAVEMENT CONDITION SURVEYS

Our commitment to superior pavement condition analysis is demonstrated through our advanced field operations and cutting-edge technology. We specialize in delivering precise, reliable pavement condition assessments that empower municipalities and transportation departments to maintain and enhance their roadway infrastructure.

State-of-the-Art Data Collection

Our field crews are equipped with the latest in pavement imaging technology, the IrisPRO Pave data collection vehicle, featuring the second-generation Laser Crack Measurement System (LCMS-2). This system represents the pinnacle of 3D pavement scanning technology, boasting the ability to detect pavement distresses as minute as one-millimeter-wide cracks and significant full-lane-width rutting while moving at speeds up to 65 mph. This capability not only meets but exceeds the rigorous standards set by ASTM D6433, ensuring comprehensive and accurate data collection.

Comprehensive Pavement Analysis

Every inch of pavement is scrutinized for distresses such as alligator cracking, block cracking, rutting, raveling, and more, with each type of distress cataloged by its extent and severity. Our meticulous segment-by-segment analysis ensures that no detail is overlooked. In tandem with pavement distress data, our crews also capture right of way (ROW) imagery, providing a holistic view of the roadway environment. This dual-focus approach enhances the depth and utility of the data collected.

Rapid and Rigorous Data Processing

Our surveys progress at an impressive rate of 30 to 50 miles per day, thanks to our high-speed LCMS-2 systems that perform continuous laser measurements to detect and analyze rutting with unparalleled accuracy. More than 4,000 measurement points per transverse profile allow us to define rut depths and areas with sub-millimeter precision.

Once data collection is complete, we process this wealth of information using our proprietary Connect™ platform. This suite of advanced analytical tools and rigorous QC/QA checks ensures that the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) values we generate are not only accurate but also repeatable.

Delivering Actionable Insights

The end result is a comprehensive suite of data, including PCI ratings and detailed reports on inventory, distress, rutting, and roughness, all delivered in both spreadsheet and GIS formats. This data is immediately actionable, ready for integration into pavement management systems for further analysis and planning.

 

Our team is equipped with the expertise and technology to provide detailed, rapid assessments that inform better decision-making for pavement management. Trust us to elevate your pavement condition surveys with precision and efficiency.
