City of Amarillo working toward improving condition of streets

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The City of Amarillo's Public Works division recently kicked off a project to inventory the condition of all streets within city limits. To do this, the city has contracted with Data Transfer Solutions, LLC (DTS) from San Antonio, TX.

DTS operates vehicles equipped with an array of precision instrumentation and data collection equipment that helps state and local transportation agencies inventory and manage transportation infrastructure, facilities, and assets. Specifically, the vans possess digital cameras that will collect imagery on all pavement and above ground, transportation-related assets located within the right-of-way. This imagery will be used to create a digital video inventory.

In order to collect all relevant data, the vehicles will be traveling all roads within the City of Amarillo and in order to ensure the highest quality of data and imagery, the vehicles will only collect data during daylight hours. The City of Amarillo asks that you give these vans plenty of space while driving as they collect their information.

If residents have any questions or need additional information regarding the vehicles, the project, or the process, they are encouraged to contact the City's Street department at (806) 378-6815.
