Analysis of Performance

Note: The total lane mile goal for 2016 was lowered compared to last year to refocus our efforts on Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ramp compliance. Two million additional dollars were reallocated toward this effort subsequently lowering our resurfacing goal.

The purpose of this metric is to track the amount of pavement, in lane miles, resurfaced each quarter toward a yearly goal. The number of lane miles improved displays the City’s commitment to providing safe, well-maintained streets. Proper maintenance reduces future maintenance costs by extending the life of the existing pavements and maximizing past tax dollar investments. Quarterly targets are set to provide information on our progress towards meeting our yearly resurfacing goals. These targets vary from quarter to quarter due to weather limitations of construction and programming needs. Achieving our yearly goals allows us to meet our overall street pavement condition Level of Service (LOS) 'B' (good).

The Street Maintenance Program has set a performance goal of 95 total lane miles of road to resurface by the end of 2020. We exceeded our third quarter paving goal of 65 lane miles. The heart of our paving season is the third quarter with ideal paving temperatures and lower traffic impacts with school in recess.

Streets doesn't expect to meet the Quarter 4 goal due to Covid-19 and budget constraints.



Metric Definition
The number of lane miles improved displays the City's commitment to providing safe, well-maintained streets.  Proper maintenance reduces future maintenance costs by extending the life of the pavement and maximizing our investments.  Quarterly targets are set to provide information on our progress towards meeting our yearly goals.  These targets vary from quarter to quarter due to weather limitations of the construction season. Achieving our yearly goals allows us to meet our overall street pavement condition Level of Service 'B' (LOS). The total number of lane miles improved annually increased significantly starting in 2011 due to the increased revenue dedicated to Street Maintenance and Repair in the Keep Fort Collins Great tax initiative in 2010.
Why Is This Important?
Well-maintained streets contribute to overall safety and reduces future maintenance costs by extending the life of the pavement and maximizing our investments. City Council has adopted policy that the overall road system condition be at a B level of service. Systematic maintenance extends and maximizes the street infrastructure lifespan.
City Organization Impact on Performance
