Number of Lanes
SEMCOG Pavement Condition Map:
Lane and centerline miles represent the approximate rated miles on federal aid link segments in the current map view only. This number should be used as an approximation of lane and centerline miles.
Centerline miles: length, in miles, of a roadway.
Lane miles: the centerline length of the road in miles times the number of travel lanes striped on the segment of road; a lane mile also may be defined as one mile of roadway that is designated as a driving lane.
PASER rating Detail Definition
Good 8, 9, and 10: New or like new road; only requires regular maintenance.
Fair 5, 6, and 7: Road surface shows some wear or aging; prime candidates for capital preventive maintenance such as crack sealing or a thin overlay to prolong the life of the road.
Poor 1, 2, 3, and 4: Road surface reaching the end of its life; most cost effective repairs include rehabilitation and reconstruction.

Note: 2003 to 2006 PASER Ratings were collected on 100% of federal aid roads for the year. Beginning in 2008, the federal aid system was divided in half, and collection of the entire system was conducted over a two-year rating period. Since that time, 50% of the system has been collected each year.
