The first phase of a “street-condition survey” is underway as the City of Roswell gathers information about the condition of its streets so the city can best set priorities for future road work.
Six consultants earlier responded to the city’s request for proposals for the street-survey project, with the city selecting IMS (Infrastructure Management Services) from Tempe, Ariz. The company’s employees will be making their way throughout Roswell to rate the condition of all city streets. They will do that by collecting street-condition information through the use of the IMS Dynaflects trailer (pictured) that performs “dynamic deflection testing and analysis.” The Dynaflects technology uses multiple sensors in a nondestructive manner to gather data for pavement structure analysis. Dynaflects has a 30-year history of collecting dependable data about the strength of asphalt and concrete roads.
The Dynaflects testing being done by IMS should be completed by Christmas. The second phase of the survey, using a different type of road-testing equipment, is scheduled to begin in January.
