In 2008, the City of Golden, Colorado hired Rii to collect 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.
The team worked closely with City Engineers to identify the types of distresses located throughout the City and created a Pavement Management Plan using historical data related to their Pavement Management Program.
Once all of this information was collected, it was integrated with the Cartegraph Asset Management Software and deployed throughout the City to proactively manage their asset infrastructure. The team worked with the City to develop performance curves specific to the City’s pavement and the associated maintenance, repair, and rehabilitation criteria used to prioritize segments for the City’s Capital Improvement Program.
All data was delivered in an ESRI geodatabase and directly linked to the City GIS for updates and data maintenance between departments.
In 2010, Rii 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.
