Subject: Federal Highways/NPS Data Collection Team Is Here!

Federal Lands Highway Road Inventory Program Van.The Federal Highway Administration/NPS Road Inventory Program Data Collection Team is here at Point Reyes National Seashore and will be gathering data through Sunday.

Their van collects info on pavement surface condition with banks of lasers and cameras. The data is then used to compile a comprehensive evaluation of our road inventory, in turn generating deferred maintenance work orders.

You may see them out and about as they drive our 43 miles of asphalt pavement. They will also be collecting data on paved admin roads like Wilkins Driveway, Bear Valley Maintenance Road, and Fish Docks Road.

Sorry for the short notice- their initial plans shifted and changed.
