What is Pavement Management?

Pavement management is the process of planning the maintenance and repair of a network of roadways, in order to extend the life of pavement.  Life cycle costs, roadway needs, and budget projections are taken into account when planning pavement maintenance.

The City of Hillsboro’s Pavement Management Program (PMP) currently has a roadway network of over 234.5 centerline miles of roadway. The City visually inspects and evaluates the condition of all arterial and collector roadways every year and residential streets every three years based on council ward. This information is entered into the pavement management database and calculations ran to determine the pavement condition index (PCI). Utilizing the PCI, current budget, coordination with capital projects and utilities, and other factors a list of projects to crack seal, slurry seal, micro-surfacing, replace asphalt or concrete (digouts), overlays and reconstruct is developed. The projects are then designed and contracted out for construction.
