Compass 2011 Data Analysis and Reporting

The “Compass” program collects rating data each year to help the department understand current infrastructure conditions and trends. Past efforts include data analysis and reporting performance and outcomes for signs, pavement, shoulders, roadsides, drainage, traffic, and bridges. In the 2005 Compass report, measures for bridge inspection and maintenance were added, and historic data was transformed from District to Region levels. In 2006, Compass reports began presenting trends for pavement condition associated with the agency’s biennial inspection cycle. In addition, starting from 2006 the Compass report took on a slightly more customer-focus by presenting overall results as a report card and by organizing the measures according to their maintenance objectives such as safety, stewardship, and aesthetics. Starting from 2008, pavement condition is presented based on the PMMS (Pavement Maintenance Management System) data.
