Tax dollars well spent! Data-driven Road Maintenance in Gaithersburg


Last night, the Public Works dept. presented the results of the new system for monitoring the conditions of our roads, using a special truck that laser-scans the roadways. Our roads rated 10-points higher than surrounding jurisdictions! This leads to a process where inexpensive methods can be used to extend the life on sections in good condition, much more cost effective than major repairs on deteriorated roadways. Kudos to Public Works for forward-looking projects and data-driven decision making. Click to see the PowerPoint:
