Summit provided GIS-based guardrail damage reporting for multiple counties by utilizing ArcGIS to create and maintain data used for the planning and repair of guardrails. Summit’s GIS team, within the Maintenance Management Department, developed the ArcGIS Collector to collect and host the data.
Our team conducted weekly assessments of multiple NCDOT routes to identify damaged and non-compliant sections. Included in the dataset are pictures, the route name and class, exact GPS coordinates, and a cost and materials estimate for the repair, which allowed the contractor to mobilize quicker and more efficiently. Once the repair was completed at a specific site, the contractor edited the status as repair verified.
