Why is this important?
The City Street Network runs on a 3 year maintenance cycle. During that time, the Pavement Management Team conducts street condition surveys by applying the pavement rating system. The pavement condition is based on a 10 point (or 100%) scale, with 1 (10%) being a “very poor” rating and 10 (100%) being an “excellent” rating. Accurate street ratings make well-planned funding decisions possible and ensure that the city can maintain functioning standards for city streets.
There has been a steady increase over the past four years. In addition, the city has recently completed a large-scale collection of street data, which will allow for enhanced performance and focused improvements to the transportation network.
