Pasco County Gathers Extensive Road Data with Unique Survey
The Pasco County Public Works Department is mapping the way to future improvements through innovative data collection.
Similar to how a Google Maps vehicle captures views of your neighborhood, specialized vehicles will travel roughly 840 lane-miles in Pasco – gathering inventory and assessing conditions along county-maintained roads and right-of-ways. This first-of-its-kind project in Pasco began the week of June 3, 2019.
The information will be used to develop long-term strategies and schedules for efficient and cost-effective rehabilitation and maintenance of infrastructure within the public rights of way.

“Current and accurate data is needed to proactively address our aging infrastructure,” said Public Works Director Branford Adumuah. “This information will allow Pasco County to apply the most cost-effective maintenance and rehabilitation strategies that translate to savings for taxpayers.”
The specialized data-gathering process, contracted through IMS Infrastructure Management Services, will also include traffic control devices, road-related stormwater drainage systems, sidewalks and bikeways. Click here to see a map of the project.
- Work hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily
- Expect periodic, single-lane closures with message boards directing traffic
- Project is expected to take about four months to complete, weather permitting
*Note: The collection vehicle will travel at normal speeds while recording road surface data; however, data collection below the roadway will involve traffic control and single-lane closures.
