Glenwood Springs, CO --- The City of Glenwood Springs recently kicked off a project to inventory the condition of all streets within the city limits. To accomplish this, the City retained the services of Data Transfer Solutions, LLC (DTS) based out of Glenwood Springs, CO. DTS is a nationwide firm and provides professional asset management and mobile data collection services to local and state government agencies.
DTS operates a fleet of sophisticated data collection vehicles equipped with an array of precision instrumentation and data collection equipment that helps state and local transportation agencies inventory and manage transportation infrastructure, facilities, and assets.
Specifically, the vans possess digital cameras that will collect imagery on all pavement and above ground, transportation-related assets located within the right-of-way. This imagery will be used to create a digital video inventory.
In order to collect all relevant data, the vehicles will be traveling all roads within the City of Glenwood Springs and in order to ensure the highest quality of data and imagery, the vehicles will only collect data during daylight hours.
This data gathered from this project will allow the City to more effectively manage the construction and maintenance of roads. Data collection activities should be concluded by October 2020.
The City of Glenwood Springs has contracted Data Transfer Solutions (DTS) to drive county roads with their Mobile Asset Collection (MAC) vehicle to collect video and GPS data in the roadway. DTS staff may be required to drive each road several times in order to collect the required data.
If residents have any questions or need additional information regarding the vehicles, the project, or the process; they are encouraged to contact the City of Glenwood Springs Public Works Department at 970-384-6435.
