Media Release: The Town of Lincoln is taking StreetScan Pavement Management Solution for a test drive

 

August 9, 2021 | Lincoln, ON: The Town of Lincoln is initiating a pilot program with StreetScan Pavement Management Solution, an innovative technology that gathers data used for the Town’s Annual Road Needs Study Update. StreetScan can monitor the health of the street network through data collected via vehicle-mounted sensors. The collected data allows staff to properly allocate and repair maintenance budgets and creates an automated road and sidewalk inventory and condition rating.

“Lincoln is a resilient community and embracing new technology allows us to address long-term planning and better understand what resources will be needed to support growth,” said Town of Lincoln Mayor Sandra Easton. “This pilot program is another example of the Town of Lincoln being a leader in the Niagara Region, using innovative technology”.

Chair of Infrastructure Committee Councillor J.D. Pachereva is thrilled that the Town will be completing a pilot program with Streetscan. “This innovative technology will be a game-changer for Lincoln”, he shared. “We all understand and appreciate the value of time, and this forward-motion technology allows staff to be proactive in their planning and prioritize based on accurate data,” he says. “This initiative also supports our commitment to responsible and sustainable financial management.”

Town of Lincoln CAO, Mike Kirkopoulos believes that Streetscan is an outstanding opportunity for the Town and will aid in efficient and effective decision-making. “Streetscan technology will allow staff to recommend key infrastructure spending decisions based on objective, current, and accurate data. This allows us to prioritize maintenance and repairs and proactively allocate resources,” he says.

StreetScan uses 3D technology to measure road defects, such as cracks, bumps, surface distortions, and texture. The 3D imaging cameras provide 2.4m of lateral road coverage and seamless road coverage in the direction of travel at speeds up to 72kph. The 360-degree camera system provides imagery of the road surface. The pilot program will offer confidence and accuracy in Lincoln’s street health and allow prioritization of the right road, at the right time. The StreetScan data will be used to prepare future budgets for the Town of Lincoln.
