2015-02-02 Street Interactive Map

Posted on February 10, 2015 at 2:41 PM by Jeremy Teal

The City of Dallas has added an interactive street map to the City website. You can find the map at http://www.dallasor.gov/streetmap. The interactive street map is designed to show citizens and businesses the current conditions of individual City streets and the estimated costs to repair each street to a minimum standard.

Early summer 2014, the City of Dallas contracted with Infrastructure Management Services (IMS) to perform a Pavement Condition Assessment (PCA) of all City streets. IMS used the latest technology to complete the PCA. IMS used the data from the PCA to establish a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) score for each street in the City. The PCI is used to score streets from 1 to 100 with 1 being the worst possible score and 100 being the best possible score.

We hope City residents and businesses will visit the City’s website and use the interactive street map to determine the conditions of the streets they use most as well as the overall conditions of the City’s streets. The features of the interactive street map allow a person to see all the City streets color coded based on each street’s PCI score; to zoom in on a specific area or street; and to click on a specific street which will pop up an information box that provides the street’s PCI score and the estimated cost to repair the street to a PCI score of 80 or better.

Visitors to the webpage will find a detailed presentation on the work done by Infrastructure 
Management Services, City streets PCI scoring information, cost estimates to repair streets, and street condition forecasts if steps are not taken to repair streets. Visitor will also find information regarding street conditions such as rutting, alligator cracking, and longitudinal cracking that they are likely to see in Dallas City streets.

If you have any questions about the interactive street map or any of the information provided on the streets please contact Fred Braun, Director of Engineering and Environmental Services, at 503-831-3562 or fred.braun@dallasor.gov.
