The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) awarded global consulting firm Stantec with a contract for data collection of pavement performance at long-term pavement performance (LTPP) test sections. Stantec’s contract encompasses four regions: North Atlantic, North Central, Southern, and Western. This is the first time FHWA has procured services for all four regions under one contract.
Stantec will collect pavement performance data, process the information received, and enter it into the LTPP database. Data from each region will provide perspective for the FHWA in understanding the performance of various pavements types. The LTPP studies program was established under the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) to help agencies build and maintain a cost-effective highway system.
Stantec’s Senior Vice President of Transportation, Susan Walter says, “We are dedicated to continuing our relationship with the FHWA and will provide them with the high level of client service they’ve grown to expect from our team.” The Stantec team has worked as Regional Support Contractors on six previous LTPP support contracts since 1988. This contract will be in place for up to five years. Stantec’s Infrastructure group is comprised of approximately 4,200 staff, operating in six countries and over 150 offices.
