Fugro’s new contract in Louisiana focuses on safe and sustainable roads

By Eric Van Rees - 13th March 2023 - 05:23

Fugro has been awarded a 6-year contract with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) for pavement distress mapping services.

The contract is part of the state's ongoing efforts to improve the safety and sustainability of their roads infrastructure, which is challenged by environmental conditions such as high heat and humidity, flooding and coastal erosion. As a recognised expert in pavement engineering, Fugro will deliver the critical Geo-data and analysis needed to help the DOTD prioritise maintenance and rehabilitation projects.

A fleet of Fugro ARAN (Automated Road Analyzer) vehicles will be used to collect pavement condition information across the state. Equipped with lasers, cameras, and other sensors, the ARAN vehicles operate at highway speeds, collecting detailed information about roughness, rutting, texture, and other conditions, along with pavement and right-of-way imagery. Project data will be formatted for use in the agency’s pavement management system for multiyear planning and will also be made accessible through Fugro’s web-based iVision visualisation and analysis software.
