Envista, a provider of web-based software for infrastructure project coordination, said that it has been selected by the District of Columbia to coordinate in roadway and utility projects.
Under the agreement, the District of Columbia is deploying the Envista’s map-driven application. It will use the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application to coordinate hundreds of roadway and utility construction and maintenance projects to be performed in public right of way. Reportedly, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) manages 1,157 lane miles of roads in the nation’s capital.
Envista said that it will enable coordination between the District’s various departments and utility companies to optimise the construction planning process, reduce street cuts in newly paved roads, and save on paving costs.
Gabe Klein, director of DDOT, said: The District is committed to improving street conditions and traffic congestion, and those goals rely on better coordination of projects in the right of way. Envista’s technology helps improve coordination with utilities because it offers the real-time exchange of planning information, which benefits all participants.
