FHWA Infrastructure Metrics

Pavement Metrics

These 2 charts below show Interstate and Non-Interstate NHS pavement condition from 2014 - 2017. The condition was calculated using the 2017 FHWA metrics as a percentage of lane miles.  The FHWA % cracking data for 2014 was calculated differently than it was in 2015.  This FHWA % cracking criteria changed again in 2017.  The other data metrics have been the same.  No data was collected in 2016.
