Pavement Condition Index and Pavement Management Program

Street Pavement Management 

Street Pavement Management is a set of tools and policies designed to manage the maintenance activities of street pavements. 

  • A Pavement Management Program (PMP) consists of an accounting to keep track of existing and historical pavement condition data and a decision-making process to help choose the most cost-effective maintenance strategies for streets. 
  • The City of Dublin, like all other jurisdictions in the Bay Area, uses Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s (MTC) computerized Pavement Management Program called StreetSaver, which staff regularly maintains and updates.

Pavement Condition Index

Pavement Condition Index (PCI) is a 0-100 ranking system that is based on the physical and structural condition of a street:

  • PCI scores of 90 or higher are considered "excellent." These are newly built or resurfaced streets that show little or no distress. 
  • PCI scores in the 80 to 89 range is considered “very good,” and shows only slight or moderate distress, requiring primarily preventive maintenance. 
  • PCI scores of 70 to 79 are in the “good” category.  
  • PCI scores of 60-69 are in the "fair" range and are considered worn to the point where rehabilitation may be needed to prevent rapid deterioration. 

The City of Dublin achieved the highest average PCI score of 85 (Very Good) in 2016, which is the highest in the Bay Area for the analysis period from 2014 to 2016!

The city of Dublin has won the 2016 Best Bay Area Roads and Best All Around PMP awards. This is the first time MTC has awarded two awards to one agency!
