PAVEMENT CONDITION RATINGS
In 2014, the City of Warrensville Heights performed a city-wide assessment of the corporate-limit streets using a “Pavement Condition Rating”, or PCR, for each road relative to each other.
The PCR system, developed by ODOT in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration System, was used to rank the grade of each Warrensville Heights’ street. Each road started with a PCR score of 100 and was deducted points for cracking, potholes, failing joints, etc. The final score for each street was determined by the measured assessment.
The PCR rating scale:
0 – 40 Very Poor
41 – 55 Poor
56 – 65 Fair to Poor
66 – 75 Fair
76 – 90 Good
91 – 100 Very Good
In a practical sense, a road that scores a 52 and a street that scores a 48 are really no different; they are both in poor condition and should be scheduled for upgrades. Likewise streets that score a 79 or a 90 are both in good condition and would not be considered for immediate upgrades.
The PCR ranking system will provide the City with a long term planning tool that will be used in conjunction with other criteria for establishing a road rehabilitation program and future road program budgets. To see how your street compares to other roadways in the City, please click below.
