Street Pavement Improvement Project

The City has embarked on a City-Wide Pavement Management Program to improve the overall condition of the City’s streets. The second phase of this five-year effort will be completed this summer.

The goal of the Pavement Management Program is to maintain the city’s pavement in the best condition possible given the funding available. Each year, preventive maintenance treatments are performed on various City streets. These treatment projects are intended to extend the life of the pavement and avoid more costly repair or replacement of streets.

2020 Street Pavement Improvement Project: Street Segments

Click here for the map that shows the street segments that are part of the Spring/Summer 2020 Street Pavement Improvement Project.

The 2020 Street Pavement Improvement Project consists of various forms of pavement maintenance treatments on 13 different streets. The project includes grinding and sweeping existing pavement, dig-out repair, patching, crack sealing, slurry sealing, asphalt overlay, adjusting utility boxes, monuments and manholes, traffic control, and painting of pavement markings.

Work on this project is expected to begin in September 2020.

City-Wide Pavement Management Program

In January 2017 the City received the Pavement Management Budget Options Report which led to the adoption of a Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Pavement Management Program (PMP) and a five-year PMP financing plan to raise the overall condition of the City’s roadway pavement from “fair” to “good.” An update to this plan was completed in 2020.

The City uses StreetSaver®, a Pavement Management Software, to monitor pavement conditions, help prioritize streets requiring resurfacing, and estimate costs of treatments and rehabilitation. StreetSaver® uses Pavement Condition Index (PCI) to classify roads based on their condition. The PCI scale rate all streets from 0 to 100 (poor to excellent condition), depending on severity of pavement distress. Currently the City of Monte Sereno’s PCI average is 63, which is considered fair. PCI values are one of the many factors used by StreetSaver® to help identify the appropriate resurfacing treatment for a given road.

Neighborhood Street Improvement Program

The Neighborhood Street Improvement Program provides a baseline in establishing which residential streets segments should be considered for improvements. Combined with preliminary cost estimates for the design and construction of each segment, staff can reference this information when developing the Capital Improvement Program and City budgetary requirements.

No Neighborhood Street Improvement Projects are anticipated for construction during Fiscal Year 2020-2021.

During City Council’s March 3, 2020 meeting, Council provided direction to move forward with the design of the design for the La Rinconada Neighborhood streets and the Highway 9 Safety Improvement Project. Design agreements have been executed for this work.

The 2018 Blanchard Drive Pilot Improvement Project consisted of the installation of frontage improvements and the resurfacing of the street along its entire length. The inclusion of the frontage improvements will greatly sustain the life of the roadway surface improvements.

The 2019 Neighborhood Street Improvement Project consisted of the installation of frontage improvements and the resurfacing of  Palos Verdes Drive, Via Vaquero, Equestrian Way.
