The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is giving notice of the intent to enter into a sole source contract with Sidewalk Labs, Inc. for an analysis tool (Replica) which uses a number of sources, including mobile carrier data, location data from third-party aggregators and Google location data, to generate travel data for a region. The use of these various data sources provides a large and diverse sample of travel data for agencies to work with. Having this large sample to draw from helps remove bias in the data collected and the data sample is not limited to only Android devices. Additionally, these data are collected from individuals for months at a time, allowing for a complete picture of individual travel patterns. Household travel surveys, which traditionally serve as the best source of data for the travel patterns of a region’s residents, are generally only able to collect data from a small sample of households for one or two travel days

Condition Rating Survey

The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit sealed proposals from firms to conduct a Condition Rating Survey (CRS) to assess the pavement condition of its nearly 16,000 center line mile highway system, Illinois’ portion of the National Highway System (NHS), National Highway Freight Network (NHFN) and Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) sample sections. The CRS is an important tool to assist the Department with its pavement management system and activities. The CRS is used to provide an overall assessment of the performance of the State’s highway system. It is the basis used to project future pavement conditions, for predicting future programming needs and is used for the required reporting of highway condition and performance measures to the Federal Highway Authority (FHWA) in order to meet current law. The Department has the need to collect data and images documenting the condition of the State’s highway system. Additionally, there is an increased need for an inventory of specific highway assets, roadside attributes, and safety components used in making highway asset management decisions. The highway condition and inventory data and images collected by the vendor will be used by the Department to analyze the condition of the State’s highway system and assets for the CRS, asset management, and highway safety programs. The goal is to ensure the collection of valid geo-referenced highway condition and highway asset inventory data statewide for analysis and reporting.
