How Roads are Prioritized

In order to maximize our dollars as much as possible, the City developed the 10-year management plan using pavement condition data collected on every single roadway in Cedar Rapids. This data ensures we are identifying roads that would help us make the most overall impact to our entire road network. The resulting prioritization list is data driven, impartial, and measurable. 

The plan blends two primary needs:

  • Our desire to fully rehabilitate roads that have reached the end of their life
  • Our desire to keep our infrastructure from falling into the state of deterioration that we see today

While the program provides approximately $18 million each year, we will still have unmet needs at the end of the 10-year program. It is our goal to prioritize our projects using as much data as we can, in order to make the most overall impact to the condition of our roadways.
