Over the next few weeks, property owners may notice two unusual–looking vehicles travelling throughout the community. A van, operated by Infrastructure Management System (IMS) under contract to the Port Hope Area Initiative Management Office, uses lasers and other sophisticated measuring equipment to study road surfaces and conditions. A second vehicle, operated by AME Material Engineering, will pull equipment that evaluates road strength.
This work is being done as a continuation of the assessment work completed in 2012. The information gathered will inform of possible road repairs or improvements required prior to and/or during the cleanup activities associated with the Port Hope Projects. The survey will wrap up in September.
