We're improving our transportation network through the Vital Streets Initiative. In this site you can see our progress, where we are making improvements, and how the program works.
Vital Streets = Complete Streets + Green Infrastructure
Below are a series of dashboards, maps, and reports related showing to the state of this program.
One of the overarching goals of the Vital Streets program is to increase our road conditions. Using the PASER rating system we measure our street conditions annually. Vital Street's goal is to have 70% of streets in good or fair condition by 2030 (PASER 10 - 4).
Continuing the complete street focus on focusing on all types of transportation, the Vital Street Program wants to create safe and comfortable walking paths.
