The Public Works Department hired Data Transfer Solutions, LLC (DTS) to conduct the study of the streets maintained by the City of Durham. This study involved driving a van with specialized equipment along the streets to measure defects. DTS used this data along with the American Society for Testing and Materials Standard (ASTM) for determining a PCI rating for each street segment. A PCI study is generally performed every four to five years to assess the condition of streets and develop pavement repair recommendations. The PCI ratings range from 0-100, with zero representing very poor pavement conditions and 100 being a newly paved street. These PCI ratings in combination with other data, field investigations and engineering judgment will be used to develop the City’s annual asphalt maintenance program.
