Our team currently assists NCDOT with their Highway Maintenance Improvement Plan. This is a 5-year highway resurfacing plan that identifies the routes that will be treated in some manner over the next 5 years. The maintenance management team collects field data for contract administration and determines the best treatment for each route prior to contract advertisement and award. Summit offers the ability to develop resurfacing contracts from field collection to documentation ready for advertisement, bid and award.
Our Maintenance Management unit partners with our Construction Engineering and Inspection unit to offer contract inspection for Maintenance Service contracts. Current projects include shoulder and ditch regrading inspection and pipe replacement inspection. In conjunction with contract inspection, we offer data collection to assist with contract preparation and deployment.
Our team assists NCDOT with their Routine Maintenance Improvement Plan. This is a 3 to 5 year plan identifying specific highway maintenance needs based on budget, location, traffic volumes and other criteria. With these plans, NCDOT is able to provide long term maintenance cycles and budget forecasting needs. These plans also simplify the ability to incorporate service contracts for specific tasks such as ditching and pipe replacement as well as administration of such contracts.
