Strategic Measure_Street Segment Condition Data
This table contains data that describes the condition of streets maintained by the City of Austin Public Works Department. The street network consisted of about 2525 miles of streets and just over 7863 lane miles of pavement in fiscal year 2019. Note that since many streets consist of multiple lanes, there are about three times as many lane miles as miles of streets. We report based on lane miles, rather than street miles in order to better capture the public's driving experience.
Condition data is gathered by a contacted vendor, who drives the streets using a specially equipped vehicle that records the data used to determine street condition. The vendor drives every lane of every street in the city, covering one-third to one-half of the city every year. Street condition is then classified as excellent, good, fair, poor, or failed based on national street engineering standards.
This table contains data for the most recent set of assessment data. Year-to-year performance is reported using another table that contains aggregated values calculated using the method described above. Private streets and streets maintained by the Texas Department of Transportation are excluded from reporting and this data set, since maintenance of those roadways is the responsibility of those parties.
