Longwood Pavement Management Project
CPWG Pavement Management Team performed an ASTM D6433-11 pavement inspection to update the City of Longwood Pavement Management Database. The scope of the project was as follows: the PAVER database was developed, the network was identified and set up, branches and sections were created, the total number of samples to inspect per section was determined, all distress types were identified, severity levels and quantities within each sample through ASTM D6433-11 were determined, a digital photo of each sample location was provided, the PCI score for each pavement section was calculated, a GIS assignment of all pavement section data to provided street centerline shapefile was created, a complete inventory and condition listing of each pavement section within the Network was created, and a final report of findings was provided along with continued support services.
At the conclusion of the inspection, our Pavement Management Team provided a link within the PAVER software of all pavement management inventory and condition data to their corresponding segment with GIS. In addition to GIS viewing and reporting within PAVER, the resulting linked GIS is also ARCGIS compatible. This allows the City to continue condition reporting on maps of the local street network. Once the final project was completed, CPWG provided the City with a full final project report. This report provided the City with an executive summary of the project and the current condition status of the network. A variety of charts/graphs and GIS views were provided within the report and a separate Excel based Inventory and PCI report was provided as well. The Excel Inventory and PCI report listed all inventory items for each local street pavement section as well as the current PCI condition and condition category.
The CPWG team worked with City engineers to update the City of Longwood Pavement Management program using the PAVER software package. Our team developed and set up the PAVER custom system tables. The system tables provided the City specific variables that are used by the software to aid in the production of Condition Analysis and M&R Planning reports. Examples include the development of a pavement model, maintenance costs, etc. A core maintenance and pavement preservation strategy were defined as well as the goal plan number of years and budget. Various scenarios were produced against the maintenance strategies employed, conditions to achieve, and budgets specified. Through analyzing the results of the various scenarios, CPWG and the City developed a multi-year pavement management program.
CPWG provided a user license of the PAVER pavement management software to the City that is licensed in their name. The current recommended PAVER software product is version 6.5.x as this was what CPWG was using at the time, as well as most clients within the region. CPWG provided on-site software and data implementation, and a light user training session. CPWG provided continued support for the duration of one year to the City.
