Description:

Pavement surface condition is evaluated using visual rating and is an indication of the condition of the road. The scoring system is from 0 to 100 with 100 the highest score possible. Visual inspection of roads occurs each year and the results are entered into a pavement management system to generate the score.


Significance:

Pavement surface condition is an important indicator of the health of the transportation network. Low scores indicate roads that will need significant and expensive repair. We have a maintenance and preservation program intended to keep the road network in the best condition possible with existing funding.
