City road ratings

The Oklahoman reviewed the 2013 Pavement Condition Index, which assigned a grade from 0 (worst) to 100 (best) to 13,679 roads in Oklahoma City. For purposes of the analysis, “road” was defined as a street or street segment listed in the index.

The city assesses the condition of each street or street segment about once every two years. Roads scoring above 85 need no repairs. A score between 60 and 85 indicates that a road could stand to be resurfaced; 35 to 60 indicates the road's base needs repairs before resurfacing. A score below 35 indicates reconstruction is required.

For the analysis, a score of 86 to 100 was classified as excellent, 61 to 85 as good, 36 to 60 as fair, and 35 and below as poor.

Not all roads are included; the state assesses some major roads. For example, the Northwest Expressway is included; Interstate 240 is not.
