Pavement management offers the potential for improving road conditions and reducing pavement maintenance costs, simultaneously! Pavements are examined periodically and the worst ones are repaired, rehabilitated, or reconstructed. At times, the public may bring pressure to repair a particular street or road. Over the years, however, as traffic volumes and vehicle loadings increasingly burden pavements, local governments maintenance budgets have not kept pace with the rising costs of labor, materials, and equipment. Our division gets around 150 requests for services per year. This can range from citizen information request, city information request, outside agency information request, and vendors. Pavement Management also includes warranty inspection and final closeout of new subdivision developments. When new subdivisions are built, our division is accountable for doing inspection of the roadway before the final closeout for that subdivision, and before the City will take responsibility of the roadway.
- Audits - A pavement audit system is a systematic approach to inventorying pavement system components, evaluating conditions, developing strategies for maintenance and then prioritizing according to needs and funding. We use the state of the art computerized methods and means to develop a comprehensive program.
- Pavement Inventory Delineate the various sections of pavement in order to identify the various areas of pavement with different makeup capabilities and use (i.e. local, collector or arterial roadways, pavement thickness) which may need different strategies for maintenance.
- Project Ranking Rank projects in order to assure that the most severe and the most cost-effective projects are considered first.
- Programming Programming and scheduling, taking into account the level of funding available to do the work.
- Implementation and Record Keeping Present the feedback between maintenance needs and fiscal resources. This step also relates the program to the work completed and the increase in the pavement condition.
