The city uses a pavement management program that takes into account several factors before spending taxdollars on road maintenance. The city assigns a score of 0-100 for each road called a "PCI" or pavement condition index. The PCI looks at the following conditions:
Road roughness (bumpiness)
Cracking (transverse, longitudinal, alligator)
Once a score is assigned to a secton of road and the traffic volume is reviewed, a plan for improvement is then created around acheiving a total system PCI score that is acceptable to the city council. At this point in time, the city council has assigned more than $1 million annually for city's pavement management program.
