Stahl Sheaffer Engineering has provided roadway condition assessment services to this company in support of Marcellus Shale exploration activity.  This includes documenting the existing condition of weight restricted state and township roadways.  The condition of the roadway is surveyed by tabulating the location, amount, and severity of all types of pavement distress in accordance with PennDOT Publication 336 Automated Pavement Condition Surveying Field Manual. During this inspection, Stahl Sheaffer collects the information with handheld GPS devices into a customized GIS geodatabase.  Geo-tagged photos of the roadway are also taken and incorporated into the database.
