Pavement Maintenance Program
About the Program
The City of Campbell maintains approximately 95 miles of roadway. To keep track of the pavement condition of each street and to develop the City’s street maintenance program each year, the City utilizes a Pavement Management Program authorized by Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) called Streetsaver. This program uses data regarding a street’s current pavement condition, maintenance and rehabilitation history, potential rehabilitation treatments, and the City’s budget to provide broad level recommendations for pavement maintenance. Basically, Streetsaver is a computerized system that manages and recommends the proper time to perform the appropriate preventive maintenance work on each street.
- Crack Sealing
- Slurry Seal
- Chip Seal
- Cape Seal
- Rubber Cape Seal
- Hot Mix Asphalt Concrete Resurfacing
When the condition of a street reaches the point where preventive maintenance no longer is cost-effective, street reconstruction will be required. Reconstruction of a street involves removing the entire roadway structural section and replacing it. The cost can be anywhere from 10 to 100 times more expensive than a typical preventive maintenance treatment. The cost for reconstruction often times is so prohibitive that the annual pavement maintenance funds alone would not be sufficient for such work.
Policy on Street Cut Moratorium
All streets within the City of Campbell which have received any type of pavement resurfacing or reconstruction are not permitted for any excavation or utility cut for a period of five (5) years from project completion. Date of project completion is the date of the filing of the project Notice of Acceptance by the Office of the City Engineer.
The Moratorium Street Map can be found at the link below. The Department will make efforts to notify utility companies of the planned streets; however, it is the responsibility of the utility company to verify status of a street prior to any excavation or utility cut or to check with City staff for planning purposes.
Violators shall restore roadway to the limits, using the method determined by the City Engineer. At a minimum the restoration shall be from edge of pavement to edge of pavement.
Failure to conform to this policy will result in stoppage of all work in the public right-of-way until proper street restoration is completed to the satisfaction of the City Engineer.
Exceptions to this policy are as follows:
1. Emergencies which endanger life or property.
2. Interruption of essential utility service.
3. Work that is mandated by City, County, State, or Federal legislation.
4. Service for buildings where no other feasible means of providing service exists.
5. Other situations deemed by the City Engineer to be in the best interest of the general public.
