A scientific, data driven analysis of New Milford roads will get underway soon. The town has awarded a Pavement Inspection Services project to Street Scan. The data will help prioritize repair operations based on available budgets and schedule long term maintenance schemes.
Street Scan uses technology to provide geophysical subsurface imaging and sensing services. Tire-induced vibrations and sound waves will determine surface texture, roughness and overall condition. A video camera is used to capture surface defects.
Mayor David Gronbach says they expect the results by December.
