Continental Mapping, a leading geospatial technology and automation provider, has been selected by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to perform a statewide asset inventory of bridge and sign clearances. Through the five-year master contract, Continental Mapping will perform mobile mapping and feature extraction to support the transportation and mobility mission of CDOT.
Continental Mapping will provide CDOT with clearance measurements for over 500 bridges and 800 signs in the first year alone. Subsequent years of the contract will specify additional assets based on priority. Using mobile lidar and imagery, Continental Mapping will derive multiple clearance measurements for each bridge, and the lowest clearance per sign. These measurements will help CDOT regarding safety issues such as permitting for oversize loads, and regulatory issues including reporting to the Federal Highway Administration’s National Bridge Inventory.
Director of Public Works Tim Caya said, “CDOT is a forward-thinking agency, and we’re glad to support their asset inventory needs with our mobile mapping capabilities. We understand CDOT’s requirements and the challenges of statewide collection and processing, especially in Colorado’s unique geography from mountains to high desert to dense urban areas. We look forward to helping CDOT better understand and manage their assets throughout the state in the coming years.”
Continental Mapping supports transportation and mobility markets through asset inventories, autonomous vehicle mapping, safety of navigation, and regulatory compliance.
