Asset Vision goes Live for TRIPII/ALX in Northern Virginia, USA
TRIP II's Maintenance and Operations activities are now supported by Asset Vision, across the Dulles Greenway.
Asset Vision has now been successfully implemented as the Asset Management platform to record and manage the Asset Register, Inspections and Maintenance of all infrastructure assets on the Dulles Greenway toll road in Northern Virginia, owned by Atlas Arteria and operated under concession by Toll Road Investors Partnership II LP (TRIP II).
Asset Vision now provides TRIPII with a comprehensive Asset Register containing details of all assets under management, as well as the ability to record all inspections and maintenance management activities for the Dulles Greenway toll road. These operations includes a large number assets including bridges/structures, safety barriers, signs, gantries, bridges, culverts, vegetation areas and buildings.
Due to the logistical challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are very pleased that the Asset Vision Platform was successfully implemented without any site visits or physical project meetings with TRIPII staff. Our teams braved the international time zone differences and came together for regular Zoom meetings to discuss all aspects of the project, as well as provide training sessions.
In addition, to help build out the Asset Register for Wire Rope and Ground Mounted Signage, we leveraged Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to identify and capture the spatial information, images and attributes for these assets based on supplied drive-through footage from TRIP II.
We thank the team at TRIP II for working with us remotely during these past months, and we are proud of what we have accomplished together!
The Dulles Greenway is a privately owned 14-mile toll road that connects Washington Dulles International Airport with Leesburg, Virginia. The Greenway is the first private toll road in Virginia since 1816.
Since the Greenway’s dedication on September 29th 1995, commuters have enjoyed a non-stop alternative to Routes 7 and 28. Previously, a trip from Leesburg to Dulles during rush hour would take approximately 30 minutes. That same trip, utilizing the Greenway’s 65mph speed limit and complete lack of traffic signals, is now less than 15 minutes.
The Greenway also maximizes traffic flow by offering electronic toll collection through the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Smart-Tag/E-ZPass System. Smart-Tag/E-ZPass is the quickest, most convenient toll payment method available. The Greenway’s Smart-Tag/E-ZPass lanes process six times as many vehicles per hour as conventional cash payment lanes.
The Greenway is a leading example of the current trend towards the privatization of public facilities. The Greenway demonstrates how the public and private sectors can join together to supplement the existing transportation infrastructure without raising taxes. This project represents a new paradigm for cooperation between the public and private sectors for resolving infrastructure issues.
