RECENT PROJECTS

 

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.

Needs Analysis

Together, we'll review your project goals and objectives, team member responsibilities, expectations for deliverables, and the project schedule.

Network Definition

We identify the types of data to be collected and segment the network to prepare for data collection.

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.

Database Development

We add information to the computerized databases, determine work needs, and develop rehabilitation and maintenance strategies.

Budget Analysis

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.

Training

We can provide customized training to your agency on all aspects of pavement management, from software use to the overall pavement management strategy.

Interactive Data exchange applications

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.

  • Champaign, Illinois

    City of Champaign, Illinois Pavement Management System Update

     

    The Client's Goal

    Update the City's pavement management system with current condition data and provide required reports on a routine basis.

     

    Our Work

    • Performed two rounds of Pavement Condition Index surveys
    • Linked the pavement management segments with the City GIS for better data visualization
    • Updated and significantly improved the City's PAVER database, adding treatment strategies and performance models
    • Generated budget scenarios and work needs statements for consideration in planning and budgeting
    • Developed a web-based Interactive Data Exchange Application (IDEA) data visualization tool
    • Reported impacts of potential budget changes on network condition, supporting City deliberations
    • Providing ongoing pavement management support

     

    The Outcome

    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.

  • Glenwood Springs, Colorado

    City of Glenwood Springs PASER Surveys and Pavement Preservation Plan

     

    The Client's Goal

    Perform pavement condition surveys and develop a three-year pavement preservation plan for 43 centerline miles of publicly-owned roadways and parking lanes.

     

    Our Work

    • Performed pavement condition surveys according to the Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating (PASER) methodology.
    • Analyzed the PASER data.
    • Developed work-needs tables by year at specified budget levels.
    • Developed maps of work plans and projected network condition at specified budget levels.
    • Documented pavement condition, treatment strategies, and work plans.

     

    The Outcome

    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.

  • Alaska Department of Transportation

    Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities

     

    The Client's Goal

    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.

     

    Our Work

    • Reviewed existing pavement condition data.
    • Organized condition data into databases linked with pavement management road segments for more accurate modeling.
    • Assisted the agency with defining representative pavement families and included this information in the condition databases for modeling analyses.
    • Worked with the PMS vendor to define reasonable and appropriate pavement families and generate performance models for rutting, longitudinal profile (IRI), and cracking that were coded into the PMS.
    • Coordinated with the PMS software vendor to ensure compatibility between the software, the pavement families, and the performance models.
    • Documented efforts in a comprehensive project report.

    The Outcome

    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.

  • Goodyear, Arizona

    City of Goodyear, Arizona Pavement Management System and Treatment Strategy Evaluation

     

    The Client's Goal

    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.

     

    Our Work

    • Evaluated the current pavement management system
    • Provided recommendations for potential areas of improvement
    • Evaluated treatment strategies and the pavement management program
    • Prepared recommendations for annual program planning
    • Developed project schedule and funding scenarios
    • Researched treatments used by agencies in the Phoenix area
    • Helped develop specifications for the city
    • Assisted with incorporating pavement preservation strategies
    • Assisted developing budget needs for their program

     

    The Outcome

    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.
