The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) manages a roadway network of over 41,000 miles. They needed to increase data collection on their network and ensure that the data was compatible with and easily uploaded to their current Pavement Management System (PMS)—Stantec's HPMA software. We collected 7,000-8,000 miles of data per year and provided a file for direct upload, maximizing efficiency.
Our past experience with the SCDOT and their PMS made the process easier for everyone involved. We sent in a fully equipped and highly experienced team to collect the data. We tested for roughness (IRI) and surface distress to get a quality rating and collected forward view digital imagery. By formatting the new data and creating a seamless upload to their PMS, we helped SCDOT enhance the available information.
Increased comprehensive data collection and advanced technologies helped SCDOT move their pavement management program forward. Together we can keep their PMS up to date and encourage accurate highway maintenance, investment decisions, and forecasting.
