City of Tampa Pavement Management Project
CPWG Engineering conducted an ASTM D6433-11 inspection of City of Tampa pavement, the collection of digital images of sample locations, GIS setup and linking, a final project report, a multi-year pavement management plan, brief PAVER software training, GIS services and support and database support.
Our Pavement Management team used a series of sources such as GIS and legacy data, to establish an inventory definition for the City of Tampa’s arterial, collector and local street network (1,350 centerline miles) and created the PAVER database. The Network consisted of the street network as a whole. Branches and sections were defined and inventory items were identified. Basic inventory items at the section level include section ID, from, to, length, width, area, and lanes. Our team collected arterial and collector street data in one phase, and the residential data in a separate phase.
CPWG Engineering inspectors performed a manual “boots on the ground” inspection following ASTM D6433-11 for each pavement section within the network (approximately 2,700 lane miles). This consisted of locating sample areas that were representative of the conditions in each section and identifying distress types, severity levels, and quantities within each sample. CPWG inspected approximately 10% of each section according to the ASTM standard, which is an industry accepted sampling frequency.
AFTER THE INSPECTION
The CPWG Pavement Management team worked with the City to develop and set up the PAVER custom system tables. The system tables provide 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. We also provided assistance in developing presentations explaining the process for the City Council and the Leadership team of the City that included the Mayor, Public Works Director and City Engineer and EOC Director.
Through analyzing the results of the various scenarios CPWG Engineering and City officials were able to develop a multi-year City of Tampa Pavement Management program. Our team worked to define a core maintenance and pavement preservation strategy as well as the goal plan number of years and budget. Our professional staff developed various scenarios against the maintenance strategies employed, conditions to achieve, and budgets specified.
