CONYERS, GA—The Conyers City Council recently approved a $69,401 contract with StreetScan to perform a detailed pavement condition assessment and inspection of roads throughout the city limits.
The StreetScan inspection will provide essential pavement data that will be used by the city to help identify and prioritize specific repair and maintenance projects in future years. Data collection of pavement conditions is expected to be completed this coming week.
StreetScan’s data collection provides up-to-date condition information on streets managed by the city. The company employs the latest technology via cars scanning roads and the use of scooters scanning sidewalks outfitted with scanning devices to detect defects including cracking and potholes. Once the survey is completed, StreetScan develops a municipal-wide inventory of roadway conditions on a scale from 0-100 (with 0 being the worst and 100 being ideal), allowing decisions to be based on data and industry-wide best practices for pavement quality and longevity.
Survey results on the 77 miles being assessed in the city limits will be delivered in late spring. Conyers joins more than 250 municipalities in the United States and Canada in utilizing StreetScan, including local municipalities of Covington, Social Circle and McDonough.
“The last full network assessment of city streets took place in 2015, so we are due this review of the condition of our roads and sidewalks,” said Director of Public Works and Transportation Brian Frix. “StreetScan’s technology will also evaluate the conditions of ADA ramps located throughout the city and that is also valuable information to have on hand.”
