Authors: Tera Haramoto, John Halaka
Many agencies are unable to review overweight vehicle impact on bridges, causing accelerated degradation of bridges. With Caltrans and FHWA, LA County DPW took the lead in developing a user-friendly app. to standardize and streamline the workflow the issuing of Overweight or Oversize Transportation permits. Geospatial analysis is the core technology used in this system. Routes drawn on the interactive map are captured and passed to a spatial query that determines which bridges have been crossed.
