Staff Summary

                     The County approved an agreement for professional engineering services with IMS in 1986 to implement a pavement management system.

                     IMS was the original supplier of said database within the County’s Automated Repair Guidance System (Argus).

                     The pavement data in the system is updated on a yearly basis; it utilizes information collected and uses dynamic load testing and laser testing procedures.

                     Approximately 25 percent of the county highway system is retested each year.

                     Information from the pavement management system is used to generate recommended resurfacing projects for the next five years.

                     In accordance with the Local Government Professional Services Selection Act, the recommended firm is IMS at a cost of services of $80,000.

                     This project is included in the highway improvement program and is designated as Section 19-00219-00-ES.
