Pavement Condition Survey Currently Underway

The City of Lakeland Public Works Department is currently conducting a pavement condition survey. 

The City has contracted with Data Transfer Solutions (DTS) to drive the City Maintained Roads with their Mobile Asset Collection (MAC) vehicle to collect video and GPS data in the roadway.  DTS staff may be required to drive a road several times to collect the required data. 

If requested DTS staff will provide information on the MAC van and it’s capabilities as well as documents identifying staff as DTS’ employees.  We anticipate completion in mid December.

If you have any questions please contact our Pavement Management Coordinator, Troy McCain, at (863) 834-3303.
