Report Shows Broken Arrow Streets in Good Condition

Tucson Street

Broken Arrow’s streets are the City’s largest asset, valued at $576.1 million dollars. Earlier this year, we retained IMS Infrastructure Management Systems to determine the condition of the City’s vast network of streets. Knowing the condition of each road helps us prioritize repair schedules and propose street projects for General Obligation Bonds.


During the December 6, 2016 City Council meeting, IMS Infrastructure Management Systems presented the results of their data collection analysis. Here are the highlights of that report:

  • Broken Arrow’s roads are in overall good condition and surpass the national standards.
  • IMS estimates a budget of $6 million a year to maintain the quality of our roads. Sales tax revenue allotted for street maintenance only provides half that amount; therefore, major road projects will need additional funding through General Obligation Bonds.


The IMS report scientifically analyzes the life-span of Broken Arrow streets, and this will be a useful guide in scheduling future maintenance.
