Percentage of Interstate System Pavement in Kansas that is in "Good" or "Acceptable" Condition

Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

The state's highway pavement is evaluated in sections and given performance levels of good, fair, or poor.  This measure tells how much of our Interstate highway pavement is in good or fair condition.

In order to be consistent with new federal pavement condition measurement procedures, KDOT changed the way it classifies roadway segments to be consistent with the rest of the nation.  By definition, more segments are classified as fair than before, even though the condition may not have significantly degraded.

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
