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 has consistently achieved the highest average PCI score of all Bay Area cities, topping the list for the past seven years.

2021 Slurry Seal Project

The City has two annual programs to maintain good pavement conditions. Street maintenance consists of preventative maintenance (Slurry Seal), in which damaged sections of the roadway are repaired and a protective seal is placed on top of the roadway in order to protect the existing asphalt to prolong the life of the roadway; and repaving (Street Overlay), in which the top parts of the street are removed and new asphalt is placed on the street surface.  This year’s Slurry Seal Project is expected to being at the end of July.  View the attached list of streets expected to receive the slurry seal this summer.
