In this case study, learn how Bentley’s Infrastructure IoT cloud solution was implemented to enhance asset management for US Highway 36, ensuring the safety of the traveling public from rockfall hazards. CDOT was able to upgrade their existing monitoring system to provide remote and real-time access to the rock slope’s performance, establishing a cost-effective system that can provide alerts based on real-time sensor data.
- In 2013, historic rainfall and flooding caused USD 2 billion in property loss and extensive damage to Colorado infrastructure, including roads.
- Damage caused to US Highway 36, a key artery for tourists, trucks, and local traffic, was repaired but remained subject to rockfall caused by erosion.
- Shannon & Wilson needed to improve ground monitoring in a remote area with poor cellular reception while using legacy sensors.
- The continual data provided by sensemetrics has improved safety and enhanced asset management along US 36.
- Data from the sensors provide a longer-term picture to understand ground and rock movements, helping prevent damage and ensure safety.
