Our Roads are Declining
Local roads are rated by a Pavement Condition or PCI, a measurement of the pavement condition and ranges from 0 to 100. A newly constructed street will have a PCI of 100, while a failed street will have a PCI of 25 or less. The City's average is 65, with a remaining service life of approximately 16 years.
According to the Federal Highway Adminstration, the cost of road repairs increases dramatically as roads decline. Without a funding source, Eureka's roads will move from the current PCI average of 65 to 49 over the next ten years - more than doubling the cost of repairs from $35 million to nearly $85 million by 2026.
