Syracuse, N.Y. - Mayor Ben Walsh has announced a new interactive map that allows people to see how roads rate with the click of a mouse.
The interactive map shows the condition of streets across the City of Syracuse.
The City, in partnership with the Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council (SMTC), launched the new online road ratings map today.
It’s based on a visual inspection of the nearly 400 miles of City-owned roads. Each road segment was rated on a scale of 1 – 10, based on the frequency and severity of pavement surface cracking. The assessment ranked 50.72% of city roads in good to excellent condition. It rated 25.73% of city roads as fair and 22.76% as poor.
The mayor said it will allow residents to compare the condition of their own street with others, and will help the city know what streets need fixing.
