City Partners with StreetScan to Assess Road Conditions

April 17, 2023 – Beginning today, you may see vehicles similar to the one pictured above in your neighborhood and on Gahanna streets. The City has partnered with StreetScan to assess road conditions in normal traffic flow. The company’s system utilizes vehicle-mounted technology to determine the health of each street, including curbs and gutters, to identify defects such as potholes, bumps, and excessive cracking. The use of this technology will greatly improve the consistency and accuracy of street ratings to better inform the City’s Street Pavement Program. The ability to capture ratings from a moving vehicle also will increase efficiencies by saving hundreds of hours in staff time and will enable the City’s Engineering Department to coordinate other projects with the Program, allowing us to maximize the investment of Issue 12 dollars.
