Pavement Condition Study
In March 2019, the Beaumont City Council awarded a contract to IMS Infrastructure Management Services, LLC (IMS) of Tempe, Arizona to assess the condition of our street infrastructure. In April of 2019, IMS started their work. IMS utilized a specialized van to travel each lane of roadway to acquire data for the study. Included in the acquired data were ways to measure the surface distress and roughness of the road. The project was substantially completed in February of 2021. The graph and spreadsheet below are a way to interpret the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) score for each segment of road maintained in the City.
Pavement Condition Index (PCI) Map
Please email errors or missing segments of streets with street name and the limits that are missing to [email protected].
Understand the Score
The following illustration compares Pavement Condition Index (PCI) to commonly used descriptive terms. The divisions between the terms are not fixed, but are meant to reflect common perceptions of condition.
The general idea of what these condition levels mean with respect to remaining life and typical rehabilitation action is included in the following table:
The Streets and Drainage Division maintains the City’s streets and right of ways. This includes tree trimming and removal; mowing; and herbicide treatment. This responsibility covers 642 miles of streets (involving 407 miles of asphalt streets and 235 miles of concrete streets) and 38 miles of unimproved right-of-ways; a drainage ditch system more than 840 miles in length; an underground drainage system of more than 400 miles; and approximately 20,000 catch basins. The division also oversees a street sweeping program which addresses all curb and gutter streets throughout the City.
The Traffic Management Division focuses on:
- pavement marking
- signal maintenance and construction
- fabrication, installation and repair of traffic signs
- maintenance of freeway lighting throughout the City
Personalized street signs are available to be purchased by the Traffic Management division. Please fill out the form below and follow the included instructions.
Engineering is responsible for the acquisition of land and the design and construction of capital improvement projects on streets, bridges and drainage systems. The division reviews, inspects, and approves all subdivision and commercial/industrial site development plans to ensure compliance with the City’s specifications and codes. Engineering updates and maintains the various maps and files of all city-owned properties and right of way and manages inter-local agreements for engineering and construction projects.

The City of Beaumont, in a partnership with Lamar University, is participating in a DHS S&T (Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology) program to gather data on water levels during rain events. The City has installed a number of flood sensors to measure water levels at outfalls. Outfalls are where the storm drainage systems within residential and commercial areas flow into a larger drainage system. The larger drainage system is typically a DD6 ditch or the Neches River. By measuring water levels, the City can better understand how the storm drainage systems are impacted when the outfall structures become submerged.
All of the sensors can be viewed at the following link: https://setexasrain.onerain.com/
The site shows all of the DHS sensors and other sensors that have been placed by governmental agencies. The sensors installed by the City have BMXX as the sensor identifier. (Example: BM24)
- When first accessing the site, the user will need to scroll down and click the large purple button that says “River Level Map Full Screen”.
- To view only the DHS sensors, the user will need to click on the icon in the upper right-hand corner that says “Views” and then click on the drop-down arrow and select “DHS S&T Sites”. Once that is done, the user will then need to click on the middle icon for “Sensor Type” and then click on the drop-down arrow and select “Stage”.
- From there, the user will be able to look at all of the sensors that have been installed and the depth of water at each sensor.
- There are Legends that state what the different colors mean when looking at the sensors on the map and the lines on the graphs.
Please see the video below for a demonstration on how to use the website. Please note, the map is a live map, and will show additional sensors when they are installed.
