Paved streets are one of the many assets that are utilized by every resident, visitor, and business.  Streets impact public safety, promote mobility, and enable economic activity.  Given limited funding, agencies and organizations are finding themselves behind in maintaining the road maintenance backlog.  

AMS has been working closely with agencies and organizations for many years to help implement cost-effective ways for road maintenance and rehabilitation.  The use of the Metropolitan Transporation Commission (MTC) StreetSaver™ has been an essential tool for many agencies around the country in planning and prioritizing streets for road treatment. 

Here's the AMS Difference

  • StreetSaver Experience –  Our staff has been working with StreetSaver since 1998.  We have been through the evolvement of the software from floppy disks to version 8.x and now to StreetSaver™ online.  We were given the “Best Pavement Management Consultant Award” by MTC.  We have worked with small sanitary districts to big municipalities with large road networks.  We are qualified raters and is qualified pavement consultant through MTC Pavement Management Technial Assistance Program (P-TAP).

  • Innovation –  Our environment promotes innovation and creativity in every project we take on.  We are leaders in advancing StreetSaver™  pavement management technology.  With the many years of experience we have seen it all, and we are progressive in making data collection easier and precise.  We are believers in connectivity and are leading the effort in StreetSaver API development.  We have successfully connected to the StreetSaver web API to work in unison with ArcGIS technology.  We have served many years with the MTC StreetSaver™ development committee and are leaders in testing developing services around new software features.  We were the first to develop the online how-to videos for StreetSaver and we were the first to create a GIS linkage in ArcGIS 10.x and above.

Quality Control

Our team of certified raters make us qualified for any pavement management project.  Quality data is important to any asset management project.  With quality data, upper management and decision makers are able to make accurate decisions about their project work plans.  AMS adheres to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) quality management plan.  Our plan is very unique and separates ourselves from others in the pavement management industry.  We use our OWN state-of-the-art technology.  We have adopted a hybrid approach method that uses both traditional walking survey inspection followed by a pavement surface scan using a mobile mapping system.  This ensures that the inspection is representative of the pavement section.  

Below is a sample image that has been taken from our mobile mapping system and imported into ESRI ArcGIS.​

Below is a sample image that has been processed by the user.  Distresses types and severities have been identified by using the measuring tools within ArcGIS.  With these geo-referenced images and distress types and quantities allow for these attributes to be easily calculated and imported into any pavement management system.  The challenge for most pavement management inspection teams is the fact that they can't easily locate their quality control inspection.  With this quality approach, ensures that the PCI is consistent and accurate.  Rutting and distortions are measured using lidar/laser scanners and weathering and raveling is done on site.
