The City of American Canyon has approximately 110 lane miles of streets. The most cost-effective, long-term method for managing a pavement network is through a Pavement Management Program (PMP). The PMP is comprised of many factors: miles of streets, current street condition (PCI), proposed maintenance & repairs and budget to name just a few. Another component is an inventory of subsurface utility needs. These needs are identified in the Potable Water Master Plan, Sewer Master Plan and Recycled Water Master Plan. All this information has been compiled into a spreadsheet that was presented to the City Council on May, 16, 2017 (item D.2). This allows Staff to schedule work to minimize damage to newly paved streets and maximize the life of the streets.

Based on the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) the average rating of the streets in American Canyon is 67.
By the time a road reaches 20 years and a PCI of 60, it has already lived 75% of its serviceable life but has experienced only a 40% drop in quality. However, once a roadway reaches a PCI below 60, rapid deterioration begins to take place.
When planning for street repair and maintenance the City considers the surface and subsurface of the street. Underground work should be done, whenever possible, prior to paving to maximize the life of the street.
