Pavement Condition Index Rating System

Pavement Condition Index 

Road Condition Rating 

Description 

 90-100

 Excellent

 Pavement structure is stable with no cracking, no patching and no deformation evident. Roadways in this category are usually fairly new. Nothing is needed to maintain the roadway.

 70-89

 Good

Pavement structure is stable, but may have surface erosion or minor cracking, which is generally hairline and hard to detect, minor patching and possibly some minor deformation. Riding qualities are very good. The pavement has a dry or light colored appearance. Some type of surface treatment is all that is required to maintain the roadway.  

 50-69

 Fair

 Pavement structure is generally stable with minor areas of structural weakness evident. Cracking is easier to detect. The pavement might be patched, but not excessively. Although riding qualities are good, deformation is more pronounced and easily noticed.

 30-49

 Poor

Roadway has areas of instability, marked evidence of structural deficiency, large crack patterns (alligatoring), heavy and numerous patches and very noticeable deformation. Riding qualities range from acceptable to poor. Spot repair of the pavement base may be required.  

 0-29

 Failed

Cost of saving the pavement structural section would equal or exceed complete reconstruction of roadway.  

Pavement Condition Policy

It is the City’s policy that at least 85 percent of the major arterial roadways will have a pavement condition rating of “good” or better. The remaining roads will be maintained so that at least 60 percent will have a rating of “good” or better

The following summarizes the physical condition assessment of City roads as of December 31, 2010:
