"Pavement management" is the practice of planning for pavement repairs and maintenance to maximize the value and life of a pavement network. 

The Commission issues a status report on pavement condition on Cape Cod each year. The collected data are modeled and analyzed to provide an objective rating of pavement conditions and needs. The annual assessments contribute to the implementation of a regional pavement management system for Cape Cod that keeps the roadway system in the best possible condition with the most efficient use of available funds.

The map shows the most recent pavement condition data collected by Cape Cod Commission staff from 2021 to 2023 on municipal, federal-aid-eligible roadways on Cape Cod.  The Cape Cod Commission pavement condition data is collected via windshield surveys.  During the windshield surveys, pavement conditions are collected based on various pavement criteria and observed pavement distresses.  Observers used a 1 – 5 rating system and make notations of distresses observed in the field.  The following table is a summary of the pavement condition criteria collected by the Cape Cod Commission:

  • Very Good to Excellent - New pavement with no cracking, rutting, raveling/ signs of wear
  • Good to Very Good - No cracking, rutting, showing a little wear
  • Fair to Good - Showing evidence or more wear and possibly repairs that are in good condition
  • Poor to Fair - Evidence of cracking, rutting, serious wear
  • Poor - Severe cracking, rutting, potholes
