Pavement Management Program

In 2018, Temple City completed a comprehensive update of its Pavement Management Program (PMP). The purpose of the PMP is to analyze various funding scenarios to assist the City in making decisions about street resurfacing priorities, based on current pavement conditions. The basis of the PMP is assessing the current condition of the City's streets. Every block of every street was inspected in 2018 and its pavement condition documented.

The PMP prioritizes the resurfacing of streets that are in fair condition so that their life can be extended before they further deteriorate into poor condition. Streets that are already in poor condition are significantly more expensive to resurface than streets in fair condition. Since limited funding is available, funds are focused on prolonging the life of streets using less expensive resurfacing methods.

Due to limited funding, it is only possible to resurface a few streets each year. In addition to the condition of the pavement, the City must prioritize streets based on the type of street, traffic volume, and connectivity to other streets.

The updated PMP was presented to the City Council on April 2, 2019. The full PMP report and the City Council presentation are available below.

Notice to Utilities and Contractors:
Street Moratorium in Effect

In March 2018, the City Council adopted an ordinance to place a moratorium on cutting or trenching of streets and alleys that were recently resurfaced. Moratoriums are in place for streets that have been resurfaced with slurry seal or other surface seal within the past 3 years, and streets that have been paved or repaved within the past 5 years.

Street Resurfacing Request

The City receives many requests each year from residents to resurface their streets. While the City regularly fixes potholes and makes other minor repairs upon request, street resurfacing is prioritized based on available funding and the factors mentioned above. Since most residents would like their street to be resurfaced sooner rather than later, the City cannot use resident requests as a basis for prioritizing streets.

If you would like to let the City know about your desire to have your street resurfaced, please complete the street resurfacing request form. This will not prioritize your street and will not guarantee when your street will be resurfaced in the future, but will inform the City about your request and the condition of your street.
