Pavement Assessment Study Underway
Beginning the week of April 30th, 2012 residents may see a team from Resource International, Inc. (Rii) walking the streets of Golden looking at pavement. This team will be providing valuable information to the City for long term planning as it relates to the Street Improvement Program.
Resource International, Inc. (Rii), an engineering consulting firm headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, has been engaged, along with Data Transfer Solutions (DTS), an asset management and transportation planning firm, to re-inspect the City of Golden’s pavements by performing a visual Pavement Condition Index survey of the entire street network. The survey will begin on Thursday, May 3rd and will finish prior to Friday, May 18th.
In 2008, the DTS/Rii Team collected 75 centerline miles of roadway asset data related to their pavement infrastructure. The project consisted of physical data collection of pavement distresses, augmented with GPR scanning of pavement thickness, and video / LiDAR scanning of the right-of-way for asset collection.
In 2010, the DTS/Rii Team performed an update to the City’s Pavement Management Program. The pavement condition was captured electronically on handheld data collectors, and uploaded daily to a master database. Once the field inspections and QA/QC verification was complete, the data was merged and uploaded within three days of field collection.
For questions on this project, please feel free to ask the team members you may see in the field, or call 303-384-8157.
