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 seventeen states and numerous 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 and provide required reports on a routine basis.
We are completing the following tasks for the City of Champaign
Through our efforts, the City has significantly improved its street definitions in its GIS. They can now link the roadway network to the GIS shape file for clear visualization of conditions and projections. Our work has allowed the City to compile data to be used for planning and budgeting decisions and to comply with the Governmental Accounting Standards Board requirements on an annual basis.
To identify ways in which the County can more effectively use available resources, including funding and manpower through an independent assessment of the pavement preservation and maintenance program being used to maintain the County road network
To support the County in its presentation of the study and recommendations to policy and decision makers, APTech participated in an in-person meeting with decision/policy makers to present the study and respond to questions about the process, analysis, findings, conclusions, and recommendations.
Protect the Town's capital investment in the pavement network by promoting efficient and effective pavement maintenance and management.
Through our efforts, the Town established performance goals and approved a multi-year work plan structured to meet those goals. The Town met with decision makers and the public to explain the newly-established goals and expectations. This generated support for the work plan and projected end-results.
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.
