City’s Public Works Department evaluates streets for type and extent of pavement distresses.
These distresses are analyzed by a software program that gives each street a Pavement Quality Index rating in the good, fair, or poor range.
A street in the good range indicates some maintenance, such as seal coating, is required. A street in the fair range indicates a need for rehabilitation methods such as overlay, curb replacement, etc. A street in the poor range indicates a need for major rehabilitation or asphalt overlay.

Street Culvert is being replaced at North Grand due to the age, width, low weight load and condition of the old one. The replacement of this culvert drain brings years of structural life for safe access crossing over it with normal vehicle traffic and heavier trucks and equipment.
