Pavement Management Program
The City’s annual Pavement Management Program contracts with private sector contractors for replacement of broken curbs and sidewalks, preventive maintenance such as crack sealing, chip sealing and pavement overlay, and reconstruction.
With over 330 centerline miles of paved streets, it is critical that the City maintain its streets to provide a safe and efficient transportation system. It should be noted that the Pavement Management Program is made possible through use of the City's ¾ cent Street Fund sales and use tax.
Street projects for the Pavement Management Program are selected based on system-wide needs and priorities. Priorities are established after examining many factors including the pavement condition, traffic volumes, and coordination with other utility projects.

What to Expect
Street rehabilitation is generally a two-stage process:
- Repairs to concrete structures such as curbs, gutters, and sidewalks are performed.
- Rehabilitation of the street continues with either a resurfacing project or total reconstruction.
- Preventative Maintenance: Cracksealing and Chip Sealing
- Rehabilitation: Pavement Overlays and Reconstruction
- If your street has been selected for rehabilitation, you will receive a project notification letter in the spring.
- As construction approaches, door hangers are also posted on affected homes to inform residents more specifically of the upcoming activities.
- If you have additional questions or comments, please contact Transportation.
Engineering Services is responsible for the planning, design, and project management of the City's annual Pavement Management Program; and coordinating contracted construction efforts with the City's maintenance efforts in order to provide the best, overall life-cycle maintenance for the City's streets and sidewalks. Duties include condition rating of the streets, updating of the City's Pavement Management System database, developing long-range rehabilitation plans, construction management of the contracted portions of the program, and coordinating work with other divisions and departments.
The contracted portion of the annual Pavement Management Program (PMP) includes concrete repair of broken sidewalks and curbs exhibiting drainage and safety issues, preventative maintenance treatments, pavement overlays and reconstruction. The various PMP contracts can also be utilized to perform work for other City divisions and departments, including construction tasks for other projects within Engineering Services such as Transportation System Management.
This program varies from other Public Works capital projects in that the scope of the program is citywide, with the overall rehabilitation needs of the Streets System being rated and prioritized on an annual basis. The nature of the work is ongoing, with the extent of work accomplished in one-year based on the budget of that year, considering the particular needs and other capital projects.
