Pavement Management Program

The Town is responsible for the maintenance and repair of 55.95 centerline miles of paved public streets which includes 13.8 miles of arterial, 15.8 miles of collector, and 26.3 miles of residential streets. The Town’s street network replacement value is estimated at $100.6 million and assumes replacement of the entire pavement network in present day dollars. This represents a significant asset for Town officials to manage. 

In May 2020, the Town Council received the 2018 Pavement Management Report and directed staff to use a "Worst-First" pavement repair approach to target repair of  Town streets, paths and parking lots in "Very Poor" and "Poor" pavement condition.  The rehabilitation of the Town’s worst streets will be done over a three year period from 2022 to 2024.  

The increase in the Town’s overall Pavement Condition Index to "Good" and the reduction in "Very Poor" ( 6% in 2011 to 3% in 2020) and in "Poor" streets (51% in 2011 to 10% in 2020) presents a strategic opportunity to focus on repair of the worst streets.  The reduction in the number of streets needed complete reconstruction allows the Town to develop a three-year $7.1 million project to eliminate the streets in the worst condition.  This work is possible because of the voter-approved Measure K local sales tax.
