The Burlington County Bridge Commission (BCBC) has been investing in implementing technology into their operation and management by adding technology as a value added to tradition and culture. Pennoni Associates, the Engineering Program Manager of BCBC through it’s Intelligent Infrastructure Systems division, has been helping BCBC with the design of an Integrated Centralized Operation, Management, Performance, and Security System (ICOMPASS™). This system encompasses different modules such as Maintenance, Capital Planning, Inspection, Performance Monitoring, Security, and Digital Archive. Each of these components has a role in adding value and improving the safety of the BCBC assets and productivity of the agency in general. This paper briefly describes the design of the system architecture, role of each module, interconnectivity of different modules, and the integration and implementation process of ICOMPASS™.
