Annual Roads Preservation Program



  • 11/2023 - IMS has completed collection of both Structural and Condition data and is currently processing it. This process is quite extensive and is expected to be completed February 1st, 2024. The data quality is the backbone for all of their processing. 
  • 10/24/2023 - IMS crews completed 21 miles of data collection
  • 10/23/2023 - IMS crews completed 10 miles of data collection
  • 10/22/2023 - Roadway too wet for collection
  • 10/21/2023 – IMS crews completed 28 miles of data collection.
  • 10/20/2023 – IMS crews completed 31 miles of data collection.
  • 10/19/2023 – IMS crews completed 36 miles of data collection.
  • 10/18/2023 – IMS crews completed 22 miles of data collection out of over 170 survey miles.
  • From mid-October to late November, IMS will be performing a pavement assessment on all Bainbridge Island paved, City-maintained roads. Please allow for slow moving equipment – all across the island during this time. Please leave room for the truck to gather the data. 
  • The 2023 Annual Roads Program consists of a Pavement Management Study. IMS has been hired as a consultant to conduct the Pavement Management Study and help to provide a 5-year improvement plan for the City to implement.

Project Overview

The City of Bainbridge Island maintains a 140-mile road network. Each year, the City receives an average of $650,000 for roads and repair projects. The budget includes $400,000 from the Transportation Benefit Fund (TBF or car-tab fees) revenues, and the remainder is supported by the City’s Street Fund. 

Road Assessment

The City uses a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) and traffic volumes to rate the conditions of the road network and to determine where road maintenance will happen. The PCI ranks the overall health of a pavement segment on a scale of 0 to 100 (0 represents a failed street; 100 represents a new street). The PCI rating is determined by a visual inspection of pavement condition, age, and distress.

As of the 2019, the City's average PCI score is 70. The current score reflects the fact that many of our high-volume roads are in good shape, but many smaller, low-traffic roads are in need of repair. The City strives to keep the higher-volume roads from deteriorating while addressing smaller roads over the long term.  The City’s last pavement condition report recommended spending a minimum of $1 million annually on pavement preservation.
