Project Information

This Project Includes: Pavement data collection, data input into the Village’s asset management software, QA/QC of data, a pavement management program report, and a formal presentation to the Public Works Committee.

Project Schedule: Data collection will start around September 27th and completed by approximately October 4th, 2017. Data input, QA/QC and report submitted by December 29, 2017.

Project Limits: All Village of Lombard roads. 
Traffic Impact: Minimal, although the van will be traveling at speeds that allow it to properly collect pavement distress data.


Why is this project necessary? Roadways are a very large percentage of the Village’s assets, and accurate information on their existing condition and predicted deterioration rate allows the Department of Public Works to budget and perform future maintenance activities optimally.

How does this benefit the Village? By establishing an accurate and predictable model, the right work can be performed at the right time. Budgets can be optimized to maximize performance and service goals. Asset management is essential in tracking and achieving those goals.

How is data collected? Pavement data will be collected by a van equipped with sensors and lasers that measure pavement profiles and roughness. The van is equipped with a Class-1 high speed pavement profiler, a distance measuring instrument (DMI), sub-meter GPS antenna with differential GPS, and an on-board computer which allows pavement inspectors to input data regarding the type, severity, and amount of observed pavement distresses. Using this data and an industry standard methodology (ASTM D6433-11), a pavement condition can be calculated.
