The Need for Updated Inspection Methods for Infrastructure
JoTo PR Client, IPC, was featured in an article in Logistics Management titled, Tax Reform Agreement Paves way for new Infrastructure Spending.
Roughly 9% of the approximately 600,000 bridges in the U.S. are in various stages of disrepair. That’s a shocking statistic given the country’s history of bridge disasters. Several structural deficiencies have resulted in several highly publicized catastrophes over the last 50 years.
Doug Thaler, President of IPC, commented on this situation saying that most of these disasters to archaic infrastructure inspection methods—methods that are over half a century old. “Traditional infrastructure inspection methods are over 50 years old and are thus quite outdated,” Thaler said. “They are manual in nature and often deliver subjective results. There are new solutions that provide quantitative data, allowing departments of transportation to better allocate existing maintenance budgets.”
