APTech offers a full range of pavement management services, from the initial system implementation to updating an existing system. Learn more about our pavement management services below.
We develop Interactive Data Exchange Applications (IDEAs) for many clients, including local and state transportation agencies and commercial service airports. These programs combine the use of maps, photographs, and links, allowing the viewer to quickly identify pavement conditions and needs at a specific location or throughout the city, county, or state. These programs can be run directly from a CD or easily hosted on a website.
Together, we'll review your project goals and objectives, team member responsibilities, expectations for deliverables, and the project schedule.
We identify the types of data to be collected and segment the network to prepare for data collection.
We conduct pavement condition assessments and compile inventory information using both automated and manual data collection methods. We can also collect roadway asset type, location, condition information, and anything else deemed valuable.
We add information to the computerized databases, determine work needs, and develop rehabilitation and maintenance strategies.
We conduct a multi-year analysis to identify the resources required to maintain your network at specific condition levels. This analysis can also identify projects that optimize the budgets available in each of the analysis years.
We can provide customized training to your agency on all aspects of pavement management, from software use to the overall pavement management strategy.
Update the City's pavement management system with current condition data and provide required reports on a routine basis.
Through our efforts, the City is better equipped to use their pavement management system for a variety of analysis and reporting needs. In the past, the City only used the PMS to report current condition. The City can now predict needs, evaluate budget change impacts, look at work options and their impacts on network condition, and present information to decision makers more effectively using better visualization tools. The pavement management system now better supports data-driven decision making and needs analyses.
Perform pavement condition surveys and develop a three-year pavement preservation plan for 43 centerline miles of publicly-owned roadways and parking lanes.
The PASER condition surveys and pavement preservation plan developed by APTech enhance the City’s ability to make data-driven decisions, respond to inquiries, and communicate current and future condition and budget impacts to stakeholders effectively.
Develop and calibrate initial performance models for Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities' (DOT & PF) pavement management system (PMS) so the agency can predict performance and funding needs with greater confidence.
Due to APTech’s efforts, the Alaska DOT&PF was able to use historic condition data and recent cracking data to develop performance models in its new statewide PMS. Now the agency can generate reasonable projections of performance and better estimates of maintenance and repair work needs.
Determine if the current pavement management system will continue to meet the City's growing needs and identify ways to increase the use of pavement preservation in the City's program.
Through our efforts and focused attention in this area the City of Goodyear found opportunities to improve pavement management practices and develop work plan recommendations. This allowed them to achieve their goals more efficiently. They were able to project network condition under different funding scenarios, which allowed Goodyear's decision-makers to weigh alternatives and make appropriate investment decisions to achieve performance goals. Bolstered by our recommendations, the Public Works department requested and received a funding increase of 30 percent from the City Council for its roads program.
