Cross-Slope Verification Using Mobile Scanning on SCDOT Interstates

The main objectives of this research are: (1) Perform technical and economic comparisons of the alternative mobile scanning technologies and conventional survey methods for cross slope verification; (2) Establish a validation site that contains tangent and curve sections using traditional survey methods that may then be used to qualify mobile scanning vendors; (3) Establish South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) guidelines for testing procedures and data delivery for the vendor rodeo and ultimately statewide data collection; and (4) Provide a survey of the cross slope and other related geometric properties for the entire interstate system in South Carolina with the selected technology which is suitable for future reference on projects.
