The City of Bécancour deploys RUBIX to measure pavement condition impact of freeze / thaw cycle

Becancour2Following an initial pilot project that concluded in 2013 , the Municipality of Bécancour has renewed RUBIX during the 2014 spring season.  The objective of the second project is to measure the ride quality of the cities road network during the pavement structure thaw period, and compare this with the data collected throughout 2013.  The results will be used to assess the impact on pavement condition of freeze/thaw cycles for the entire road network of the municipality.

This project is consistent with the current municipal action plan for the renewal of drinking water, sewage, and roads which is conducted according to the MAMROT (Ministry of Municipal Affairs, Regions and Land Occupancy Quebec) guide, published in November 2013.
