Pavement Management Program

The City of Richmond overall pavement condition has improved significantly over the course of the last five years, ever since City Council increased the pavement budget within the Capital Improvement Plan. The current pavement budget of about $4 million per year is insufficient to address the paving need of about $100 million throughout the City. The Pavement Management Program (PMP) utilizes the StreetSaver asset management software to prioritize the disbursement of funds throughout the entire street network of about 280 miles of pavement. Streets with higher traffic volumes, such as Richmond Parkway, Barrett Avenue, and Cutting Boulevard, receive a higher proportion of funding than the local streets and residential cul-de-sacs. Each year a few streets are paved and treatments include preventive maintenance for streets in good condition, rehabilitation for streets in fair condition, and reconstruction for streets in failed condition.
