Traditionally, highway-resurfacing projects have been a challenge, not only for the contractor, but the inconvenienced community through which the road passes. To collect the project data needed to perform the resurface, typically required lane closures and a team of surveyors collecting data points from along the side of the road with diverted traffic whizzing past. It was a slow, cumbersome, and dangerous process that affected the daily commuter flow and affected the contractor’s project timeline. But things are getting better.
