Road surface inspection checklist

Download this free PDF checklist to inspect the condition of road surfaces.

Different road surfaces are highly vulnerable to damages due to the elements, traffic, and regular wear and tear. A road inspection checklist helps the user identify issues in a road’s surface and indicate their severity and whether they need immediate repair.

This page will discuss:

  • Road surface inspection requirements
  • The purpose of a road surface inspection
  • Benefits of using a road surface inspection app

What are the requirements of a road surface inspection?

Exposure to the elements and high traffic impact a road’s surface and create wear and tear that occasionally requires repair. A road surface inspection checklist should include all the possible types of damage, such as cracking, bleeding, bumps and sags, potholes and more., as well as a way to indicate the severity of the damage.

Who uses a road surface inspection checklist?

Civil engineers, construction workers, and transportation professionals can use this road surface inspection form to conduct a detailed survey of a road’s condition, document damage, and make recommendations for remedial action.

Why use a road surface inspection app?

A road surface inspection app simplifies and speeds up road surveys by eliminating the hassles of pen and paper and enabling engineers to conduct inspections using their mobile device. With a mobile app, the surveyor can indicate damage type with a simple tap of a drop-down menu and even include photos to validate the type and severity of damage. Automatically geotagged records improve efficiency by enabling repair teams to quickly locate the areas in need of repair, even without internet or cellular connection.
