MassDOT Ancillary Structure Inspection and Non-destructive Testing


HAKS is providing inventory and initial inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT) services to MassDOT for more than 1,500 ancillary structures throughout the Commonwealth, including highway signs, ITS, and signal and lighting structures. HAKS is also responding to emergencies involving these structures, such as impact damage or post-event inspections.

Field inspections are hands-on for all elements of the ancillary structure and are performed in accordance with Federal Highway Administration guidelines as well as state inspection manuals. During the first two years of this four-year contract (2012-2016), HAKS located more than 30 critical-hazard deficiencies that required emergency repairs or, in several cases, immediate removal of the structure.
