City of Texarkana Kicks off Mobile Data Collection Project

The City of Texarkana, Texas will begin a project next week seeking to inventory the condition of all streets within the city limits. To accomplish this, the City retained the services of Data Transfer Solutions, LLC (DTS) based out of San Antonio, TX. DTS is a nationwide firm and provides professional asset management and mobile data collection services to local and state government agencies.

DTS operates a fleet of sophisticated data collection vehicles equipped with an array of precision instrumentation and data collection equipment that helps state and local transportation agencies inventory and manage transportation infrastructure, facilities, and assets.

Specifically, the vans possess digital cameras that will collect imagery on all pavement and above ground, transportation-related assets located within the right-of-way. This imagery will be used to create a digital video inventory.

To collect all relevant data, the vehicles will be traveling all roads within the City of Texarkana, and to ensure the highest quality of data and imagery, the vehicles will only collect data during daylight hours.

If residents have any questions or need additional information regarding the vehicles, the project, or the process; please contact the City of Texarkana at 903-798-3948 or dusty.henslee@txkusa.org.
