CLIENT: Illinois Department of Transportation
PDF FILE: IDOT District 1 Databank Management
DAMA has been selected three times as the Prime Consultant for the IDOT District 1 Databank Management Consultant project. We are responsible for collecting field data across thousands of miles of roadways in IDOT District 1 and identifying roadway attributes, analyzing construction plans, developing submissions for Functional Classification changes, and rating roadways using the IDOT Condition Rating Survey (CRS). We evaluate LiDAR, GIS, and digital imagery to identify distress patterns and determine an overall score for segments throughout IDOT District 1.
DAMA uses CRS ratings and identified CRS distresses to evaluate roadway conditions and select appropriate preservation methods. We have developed methods to evaluate, prioritize, and select pavement preservation projects and identify candidates for the use of new types of materials and construction methods. Across 4 cycles, DAMA has submitted over $550 million of projects affecting over 1,100 route miles of roadways to the IDOT District 1 Multi-Year Program. According to IDOT personnel, IDOT’s methods have helped District 1 to increase its throughput by 7-8x over previous cycles.
