This standard covers driveways and private roads of any material (asphalt, concrete, dirt, gravel, paving stones), expansion joints, curbing, gutters, utility access covers, and rebar. These areas are inspected for two deficiencies – potholes and significant obstructions. The pothole standard is the same as the parking area standard, utilizing two measurements to determine if a pothole is present.

Secondly, obstructions would include scenarios where the road is blocked or impassable, such as downed trees, impassable holes, large snowbanks, parked cars, or flooding that prevents the road or driveway from being accessed. This element can also include inoperable roadway gates but should not include temporary blocking, such as construction cones.

Def# Deficiency Severity Repair Due HCV Rating
1 Road or driveway access to the property is blocked or impassable Severe 24 Hours** Fail
2 Any one pothole is greater than 4” deep and 1SF or Greater Moderate 30 Days Fail

**HCV/PBV Correction Timeframe is 30 Days for this deficiency
