Two factors are taken into consideration when trying to determine whether or not a street needs to be repaired or replaced.
The first is to determine the Overall Pavement Condition Index (OCI). This is determined by using specialized equipment to collect data that is uploaded into a software program which analyzes the information and calculates a condition rating from 0 (worst) to 100 (best). The pavement assessment program also makes recommendations on what type of treatment needs to be done to the street to improve its overall condition (see above for construction types).
The second factor is a field inspection by City of Denton Streets Department staff. During this inspection, the staff will determine if temporary repairs need to be made. You may see a specialized City truck measuring the OCI of your street.
