Our pavement maintenance program
is about to make history
, with a roughly 280-mile pavement maintenance program in 2019. This begins a nine-year program to repave every mile of local and neighborhood streets in our city, while continuing to care for our major streets as well.
Lots of repaving means frequent parking restrictions, multiple detours, dust, and noise. Be prepared by clicking on our
Pavement Projects Ma
p to see which streets are scheduled this year. If you see a street of interest to you, check out our
weekly pavement updates
on the right side of your screen, under "News & Announcements" to learn about our paving activities as they move through San José.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we bring new life to hundreds of miles of San José streets!

About our Pavement Maintenance Program
We maintain over 2,400 miles of street pavement, including:
We perform inspections to:
Track network condition.
Identify conditions that have negative impacts on safety, durability, and appearance.
Inspections are performed by City staff and consultants.
If performed before the road begins to break up, preventative maintenance is the most cost-effective way to maintain pavement.
Extends the life of the road and keeps it looking and riding in like-new condition.
Treatments performed to increase the life of the roadway:
Include chip sealing, slurry sealing, and resurfacing.
Prevent water from entering the roadway, which can cause early failure.
Can extend the useful life of roads from 20 to 100 years if maintained regularly.
The 2016 Arterial Resurfacing was partially funded by a grant from CalRecycle. By using rubberized hot mixed asphalt in the paving material, approximately 130,000 California waste tires will be diverted from the waste stream by this project.
When the condition of a street reaches the point where preventive maintenance is no longer cost-effective, reconstruction is required.
Reconstruction involves removing the entire roadway structure and replacing it.
Repairs of this scope are 6 to 10 times more expensive than preventative maintenance.
Corrective maintenance is work identified during inspections or in response to a citizen’s concern, including:
Full depth dig outs.
We own and maintain
165 vehicular bridges
that carry traffic on city streets.
To report damaged bridge railings, deck surfaces, fencing, or sidewalk on or near a vehicular bridge, please call
The City also owns and maintains pedestrian bridges often found in parks or near schools. To report damage to a pedestrian bridge, please contact the
Neighborhood Parks Division
