Pavement Management Program
Guys PavingIn 1986, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) developed a Pavement Management Program (PMP).  This computerized application assists decision makers to evaluate and prioritize the maintenance of a pavement infrastructure and develop cost-effective treatment strategies and schedules.

Prior to the PMP, the City of San Mateo directed a majority of funds toward street reconstruction.  With reconstruction costs high, annual funds of about $4.5 million would currently only allow for the reconstruction of 2 miles of street.  Meanwhile, the majority of streets faced continual wear and tear leading to a backlog of street repair and maintenance. 

In 1995, The City of San Mateo implemented the PMP.  Engineers now use this tool to prioritize street repairs and focus on cost-effective techniques to extend the life of the pavement and improve the condition of the overall road network.
