How is the City’s street network condition measured?

Every five to seven years, the City (and all cities in the County), have every road surveyed for condition, called a Pavement Condition Survey or Index (PCI). This gives every road (each will be broken into many sections) a score from 1-100. 80-100 is “Good”, 50-70 is “Fair”, 25-50 is “Poor” and 0-25 is…well you can guess. With this we can estimate what a road of a 30 PCI ranking (a lot of construction $ to improve) vs. a road with a 75 PCI ranking (a lower $ to preserve).
