Pavement Management

The Pavement Management Crews major function is to inspect and record the City's existing paving for failures. All city streets and alleys are inspected every 6 to 18 months depending on their condition. With the information received from the inspection, the Street Department develops a multi-year infrastructure construction program, which contains the department’s construction projects for the upcoming three years.

Prior to developing the program, a list of candidate construction projects is generated from the department’s Pavement Management System (PMS). The PMS is a listing of all streets and alleys within the city, with a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) assigned to each street/alley segment based on a physical inspection of streets and alleys. The PCI is a numerical index rating from 0 to 100. The best rating is 100. Once the list of candidate streets is developed, the Street Department staff inspects these streets to determine which projects warrant incorporation into the infrastructure program.

The Street Department is in the process of upgrading the pavement management system that allows us to display updates to our PCI ratings. Updated displays will be available in August. In the meantime, the most recent data is available through the My Garland service. Click to open “Streets Condition” and click to turn on “Add Street PCI to the detail map.”
