Quality Control Proposed for City Roads

Honolulu City Councilman Stanley Chang wants the city to adopt a standardized system for rating city roads. Currently, the city uses a policy of ‘worst comes first’ when deciding which roads should be refurbished.

“Which means that a road has to deteriorate to the worst possible condition before it gets reconstructed,” Chang explained.

According to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, every $1 spent on keeping a road in good condition avoids $6 to $12 needed to rebuild the same road once it has deteriorated.
