Each year, the Engineering Division inspects the city streets and identifies those streets that require repair or reconstruction. The condition of the pavement is evaluated and measured using a pavement condition index rating system. This approach assigns a numerical rating to each section of road being evaluated. A database tracks the pavement condition and the history of maintenance of every roadway section.
