Pavement Condition Index

All City-maintained streets are inspected every 3 years to collect pavement condition data. The City uses this information to establish the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) for City streets. The PCI was developed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers, and it is commonly used in transportation civil engineering.

  • The Pavement Condition Index (PCI) is an objective numeric measurement of the pavement's condition
  • The PCI can range from 1-100
  • Good condition equals PCI above 70
  • Poor condition equals PCI below 50
