Pavement Rehabilitation Program
The City’s ongoing Pavement Rehabilitation Program is intended to address the City’s pavement rehabilitation needs. Locations for maintenance are selected based on Pavement Management Program (PMP) data, resident feedback, and field observations from Street Maintenance crews.
The 2021 Pavement Rehabilitation Project began on July 19, 2021. The contractor will be raising manholes and valves at Peak and Wright Avenues beginning the week of August 30, 2021, which will be followed by striping. Work is scheduled to be completed in the month of September 2021.

Pavement Rehabilitation Funding
The City funds the Pavement Rehabilitation Program through revenues from gas taxes, vehicle registration fees (via VTA), and the One Bay Area Grant. Over the last six years, the City has supplemented capital funds with significant dollars from the General Fund. Two new significant funding sources have been established through the passage of VTA Measure B to increase the sales tax in Santa Clara County and SB 1 which increases the gas tax. New funding from these sources has increased funding for pavement rehabilitation projects by approximately $1.6 million annually. The 2017 Pavement Management System Update recommends the needed rehabilitation of $4.5 million per year to maintain the City’s current pavement condition index (PCI) of 72, even with the new additional revenues the City still has a 2.3 million dollar annual shortfall in funding needed to provide sustainable street maintenance.
