|Maintenance Report Card
City role: significant
|Three measures: the average Pavement Condition Index (PCI) for arterial lane mileage within the Redmond city limits, the number of water main breaks, and the number of sewer overflows.
Streets. The PCI for Redmond's arterials was 76 in 2015, increased from 75 in 2014. The City paved parts of Redmond Way, NE 24th St and 156th Ave NE in 2015. PCI is a standardized 0 – 100 scale that indicates the overall condition of a given section of pavement. Pavements scoring a PCI value of 70 or above are considered to be in adequate condition; roadway maintenance costs increase significantly when average PCI decreases below 70.
Utilities. The number of water main breaks increased to 13 in 2015. According to the American Water Works Association, any leak that requires immediate action should be considered a water main break. A water system Redmond's size is considered to be in the top 25 percent for system integrity if there are fewer than 10 breaks each year. There were no sanitary sewer overflows in 2015. Water main breaks and sewer overflows are suggestive of the state of Redmond's water and sewer infrastructure.
