Strategic Measure_Sidewalk Condition Data Aggregated

This dataset contains data about the conditions of sidewalks maintained by the City of Austin Public Works Department, aggregated by fiscal year. It does not include sidewalks maintained by private parties or other government entities. This dataset is used to support related measures in the City of Austin's Strategic Directions 2023 dashboard.

This network currently contains about 2700 miles of sidewalks, of which 616 miles have been assessed. Condition assessment is a manual process, requiring people to walk the sidewalks, measure their conditions, and record observations and measurements in a cloud database that is tied to a map of the sidewalks. This dataset describes conditions as of the FY2019 assessment, which includes all high priority and very high priority sidewalks as described in the City of Austin Sidewalk Plan adopted in June 2016. Lower priority sidewalks are present in the dataset, but without an assessment of their condition. Assessment of the remaining part of the network should be completed by the conclusion of calendar year 2021.
