[ARCHIVED] Lombard Pavement Assessments in November

High Tech white van pictured

Residents may see a vehicle like the one pictured traveling on roadways between November 15 and November 30, 2021.  The Village of Lombard has partnered with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) to conduct pavement assessments of roadways in Lombard as part of the Village’s Pavement Management Program.

The data collection process uses vans that will drive each roadway and record pavement conditions using lasers.  The lasers can measure the change in road surface within two-thousandth of an inch, or roughly 1/2 the thickness of a piece of paper in a single pass to identify cracking, rutting, texture, potholes, raveling, and roughness.

Public Works Engineering staff will use the collected data to manage street maintenance in the most cost-effective and efficient manner.  A combination of preventative maintenance techniques from crack sealing and patching, to asphalt resurfacing when a road surface has reached the end of its service life, can be used to ensure smooth, safe, and economical pavements across a roadway network.

Per the Village Board policy, the Village of Lombard will assess the collector/arterial roadways on a five-year rotation and the local roads on a ten-year rotation.  The Village conducted the pavement assessment of all roads in 2017 when the Pavement Management Policy was adopted.   The Village had budgeted funds in the 2022 Budget to conduct the pavement assessment.

CMAP has received Federal funds to assist communities with conducting pavement assessments.  There is no cost to the Village for participation in the CMAP program.
