Success Story

City of Topeka, Kansas Paving the way to a closed funding gap

Jason Peek, Public Works Director
City of Topeka, Kansas, US


City of Topeka’s Public Works department was tasked with using a 0.5-cent retail sales tax to fund a pavement renewal project, as well as improving their average Pavement Condition Index (PCI) from 55 to 60 over the next 10 years.


Using our strategic asset management tool, Brightly Predictor, Topeka proved:

  • They could use their annual budget of $24 million to improve their PCI and lower the percentage of roads reaching end of life from 10% to 4.7%

  • An annual investment of $31 million would only yield a 3-point improvement in average PCI
