Paving Our City's Roadways

The City of San Mateo has 210 miles of city streets to maintain. Maintaining and repairing roads is an ongoing effort by the Public Works Department.

The City has a Pavement Management Program (PMP) that helps provide information to maintain roads in a cost-effective way.

The City is required to have a PMP in order to qualify for State and Federal funding. The PMP format was developed by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) which is the transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.

If the City of San Mateo reconstructed every city maintained street, it would cost approximately $378 million. Our average annual road repair budget is $4.5 million.
