PITTSBURGH, PA, – RoadBotics recently released an interactive U.S. City Roads Report featuring 75-mile pavement condition assessments with road ratings and high-definition imagery of 20 major metropolitan cities.
RoadBotics U.S. City Roads Report can be found at https://www.roadbotics.com/us-city-roads-report-2021/. By clicking on each city dot, visitors can see the overall network score of the 75-mile assessments and the interactive map with images and ratings. They can also virtually drive down any of the roads and view the network rating breakdown by segment showing what percentage of roads were rated best to worst.
The cities assessed, in alphabetical order, were Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Columbus, Denver, Detroit, Washington, D.C., Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Nashville, New York City, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Francisco, and Seattle.
As a part of the RoadBotics U.S. City Roads Report, RoadBotics CEO Ben Schmidt, Ph.D., provided his insight around what the data indicates and how he thinks we can solve the infrastructure issues our country is facing.
“Maintaining infrastructure is much less flashy and far less interesting than building brand new infrastructure; however, better maintenance is the key to improving our grade,” he shares. You can read the complete article at https://www.roadbotics.com/2021/03/01/insight-into-road-report/.
To complement the Report and article, RoadBotics asked Infrastructure Leaders from the education, engineering, construction, and technology sectors what recent innovation they think has had or will have the biggest impact on infrastructure. Their answers can be found in brief videos at https://www.roadbotics.com/insights-from-leaders-in-infrastructure/.
RoadBotics has also made the U.S. City Roads Report’s open data set available for download at https://www.roadbotics.com/2021/03/15/roadbotics-open-data-set/.
