Whitfield County Public Works has contracted with The ARRB Group, Inc. to perform a countywide pavement condition assessment and inspection project Feb. 1 – April 1.
Using advanced pavement condition testing equipment, ARRB will gather pavement condition data on all County-maintained roadways. The County will use this data to identify the streets most in need of repairs and develop a multi-year paving and preservation plan.
“Everyday traffic and weather have a significant impact on our roads; identifying and measuring pavement conditions now will help us avoid bigger issues on our roadway network down the line,” said DeWayne Hunt, Public Works director. “This project with ARRB will help us make data-driven decisions when planning the County’s roadway maintenance.”
“Roadway pavements are probably the most valuable asset a county owns, and ARRB is proud to help Whitfield County proactively protect it,” said Nathan Kebede, chief operating officer at ARRB. “Our team has many years of local and global experience and thousands of inspected miles under our belts. We look forward to using that expertise to help Whitfield County collect accurate pavement condition data.”
Citizens can expect to see an ARRB van equipped with specialized technology that measures the roadway surface condition traveling Whitfield County roads. Drivers and pedestrians need not worry about safety since the ARRB van will follow all posted traffic signs and display a warning beacon, official said. The data collection project schedule maybe subject to change due to timing of other utility projects, weather, special events and any unforeseen circumstances.
