You know, a lot of folks are starting to get excited about pavement management and rightfully so.
Be forewarned however that not all consultants out there providing these services are delivering all that they promise.
Recall that Scott McDonald and I did a podcast session on Better Roads Radio a while back, here is the link http://ipma.co/betterroadsradio/2014/01/16/episode-3-the-one-where-blair-corners-scott-mcdonald-ipma-advisory-board-member-and-paver-guru/ where we discussed the key essentials in setting up your data base.
Well, apparently there are still firms out there, buzzing around collecting data all over the country that pay little if any heed to the last M and R date or pavement section type for that matter.
Then, as you may have guessed our team swoops in and helps aid the agencies in fixing all the corrupted data that is input into the PAVER™ data base for your agency. (BTW, the same stuff likely happens with other software programs out there).
If your city or county is interested in setting up a pavement management program, and I don’t see why you wouldn’t be, take a look at this short video to learn the key essentials to pavement management basics SO THAT YOU DON”T HAVE TO ENDURE THE PAIN OF FIXING EVERYTHING at a later date.
Hope that didn’t offend anyone LOL.
