The City of San Diego’s (City) public right-of-way spans approximately 3,000 miles of streets and alleys, as well as infrastructure underneath the roadway surface. Mayor Kevin Faulconer established a goal of repairing 1,000 miles of City streets by 2020 while also addressing a backlog of deferred maintenance and needed capital improvements to City assets including buildings, pipelines, and other infrastructure. With the prioritization of infrastructure improvements and maintenance, the City can expect an increase in excavation activity and other impacts that will affect the public right-of-way and current street conditions.
Transportation and Storm Water Department seeks a solution that would have the following outcomes:
- Develop a road pavement assessment technology that can be mounted or deployed on municipal fleet vehicles
- Ability to perform post-processing data and generate geospatial analytics of road conditions.
- Using other datasets (e.g. Pavement Assessment Reports and Street SD, Capital Improvement Projects) to create a predicative analytics engine tool to assist civil engineers to prioritize road repair.
