How are street reconstruction areas prioritized for reconstruction?

Data is collected on the condition of the pavement, watermain, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and lighting systems. The condition of the systems are compared to the remaining life in those systems to determine if now is the right time to maintain the systems or reconstruct the systems. Once reconstruction is determined the right plan of action, street reconstruction areas are compared to planning documents such as the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan to determine additional needs. After all the needs are identified, staff tries to prioritize based on need with consideration of impacts to residents in an area over multiple years.
