Overview

Pedestrian and Non-Motorized Infrastructure Condition Rating System.

  • Condition rating system
  • Online information available to public
  • Benefits of proposed system

Triangle Background
  • Triangle Objectives:
    • Improve the existing infrastructure to encourage the use of alternative modes of transportation to/from the Triangle Study Area.
    • Promote connectivity, safety, accessibility and intermodal potential.
  • Our Objectives:
    • Create a method for rating the condition of the pedestrian and non-motorized infrastructure in Triangle Study Area.
    • Develop database of pedestrian and non-motorized infrastructure.

condition rating system
Condition Rating System
  • Creating a method for rating the condition of sidewalks, bike paths, transit stops, and crosswalks.
  • Sidewalk Condition Rating System will be modeled after methods used for rating highway pavements.
  • Sidewalks can be viewed similarly to pavements.
    • Miniature concrete slabs
    • Exhibit similar distresses
    • Lower complexity rating system needed for sidewalk infrastructure
three modes of distress
Three Modes of Distress
  • Fracture: Distress in the form of cracking or breaking.
  • Disintegration: Distress in the form of stripping, raveling or spalling.
  • Distortion: Distress in the form of deformation or separation.
sidewalk condition rating process
Sidewalk Condition Rating Process
  • Examine current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.
  • Create criteria for evaluating.
    • Type and magnitude of distress.
    • Assign numerical values to each distress level
    • Pre-defined set of common obstructions (i.e. fire hydrant, mailbox, utility pole, etc.)
  • Visual inspection.
  • Assign condition scores.
  • Use the scores to determine the urgency of maintenance.

Benefits of Condition Rating System:

  • Information for The City of Austin
    • Current condition levels
    • Maintenance and construction needed
    • Cost estimation
  • Information for the citizens of Austin
    • Current condition levels
    • Safe and continuous routes
