Engineering updates and maintains the various maps and files of all city-owned properties and right of way and manages inter-local agreements for engineering and construction projects. This division provides survey work for the City.

Pavement Condition Study         

 In November 2011, the Beaumont City Council awarded a contract to IMS Infrastructure Management Services, LLc (IMS) of Tempe, Arizona to assess the condition of our street infrastructure. In January of 2012, IMS started their work. IMS utilized a specialized van to travel each lane of roadway to acquire data for the study. Included in the acquired data were ways to measure the surface distress and roughness of the road. The project was substantially completed in July 2013. The graph and spreadsheet below are a way to interpret the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) score for each segment of road maintained in the City.

Understand the Pavement Condition Score         

The following illustration compares Pavement Condition Index (PCI) to commonly used descriptive terms. The divisions between the terms are not fixed, but are meant to reflect common perceptions of condition.

The general idea of what these condition levels mean with respect to remaining life and typical rehabilitation action is included in the following table:
