The Town of Sudbury hired Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc (VHB) in 2017 to perform a
pavement, sidewalk, and guardrail management study.
The comprehensive study was undertaken to evaluate pavement, sidewalk, and guardrail conditions in Sudbury and to allow for prioritization of maintenance and rehabilitation activities and the analysis of various funding scenarios.
Under the scope of this project, VHB performed distress ratings on 139.6 miles of Town maintained roadway as well as evaluated the condition of the sidewalk and guardrail network. The pavement ratings were completed using the RoadManager system rating formula that is detailed in section 2 of the report.
The report below describes the relevant concepts of pavement management practice, the
steps undergone by VHB throughout the course of the project, a summary of the conditions
found in the Town, and the budget analysis performed by VHB.
