In order to develop long-term maintenance plans and budgets, The City of Mustang has engaged with Cowan Group Engineering and IMS Infrastructure Management Services LLC, to complete a detailed inventory and condition rating of all roadways and select right of way assets owned within the City of Mustang.  The data is collected and loaded into an asset management program specifically designed to assist the municipalities to develop long-term rehabilitation plans and budgets. The field surveys will be completed as follows using specialized surveying equipment.

The assignment will be to inventory and collect pavement performance data using a device known as a Laser Road Surface Tester or RST.  This device measures pavement roughness, rutting, cracking and other surface distresses as it travels down the roadway.  It will also be used to collect digital video and Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) information for cataloging right of way assets.  The RST is a 2019 white Ford Transit with two roof mounted laser scanners on the rear-end of the vehicle pointing straight down.  Operated by three field technicians, the RST travels at posted speed limits and will survey each roadway at least once.
