The purpose of the pavement maintenance program is to establish an effective, economic priority system for the repair of deteriorated pavement and the preservation of good pavement. The city uses George Butler & Associates (GBA) Street Master Program to evaluate the condition of the streets. The GBA assigns a numerical value to each street that indicates the pavement condition. The GBA is one of the tools that the city uses to determine the condition of the street.
The City strives to maintain current pavement conditions in its database to help ensure that accurate information is available for planning future repairs. City staff will be reviewing the conditions of all City-maintained roadways during the fall and winter of 2011. Approximately one quarter of the City-maintained roadways will be reviewed each year thereafter to maintain the system's accuracy and relevance.
