How does the Town decide which streets are going to be paved?

The Town contracts every three years with an independent engineer to do a rating of every street in town. The resulting rating is called the PCI or Pavement Condition Index and is required by state law. A low rating means a street's pavement is in very bad condition, while a high number indicates the street is in good condition. The ratings go from 1 to 100. Streets are selected by the Public Works Director for treatment based upon their PCI rating, and reviewed by the Capital Program Monitoring Committee each year. The Committee then makes recommendations to the Town Council regarding the capital plan for the upcoming year.
