DTS: Paving the Way in Brownsville, Texas
Brownsville, Texas has contracted DTS to take the first steps towards bettering road conditions throughout the City. The goal of this project is to develop sustainable pavement management program and DTS is happy to be a part of this improvement process! DTS will mobilize a mobile asset collection (MAC) vehicle to Brownsville to conduct the data collection on approximately 800 miles of roads.
The MAC vehicle is equipped with pavement and right of way cameras to perform the City’s pavement and asset collection and rating. Forward and right facing cameras will collect imagery on assets in the median and right of way (ROW). The ROW imagery collected will include signs, traffic lights, guard rails, curbs, manholes, and ADA ramps to name a few. DTS will load the collected data into VUEWorks, a work and asset management software, to implement a pavement management system that will allow the City to track pavement and asset conditions, assess risk, forecast budgets, plan projects and evaluate pavement deterioration.
