What is the Pavement Condition Index (PCI)?

Using ground-penetrating radar, every street in Kingsport was driven and given an industry standard PCI rating. A low PCI rating (less than 50) indicates the worse condition and a high rating (more than 51) represents the best condition. Factors considered in determining the PCI rating of a street segment include, but are not limited to the streets functional classification, traffic volumes, surface condition, riding condition, and structural condition.
