Street Pavement Improvement Project

The City of Monte Sereno utilizes a City-Wide Pavement Management Program to improve the overall condition of the City’s streets. 

The goal of the Pavement Management Program is to maintain the city’s pavement in the best condition possible given the funding available. Each year, preventive maintenance treatments are performed on various City streets. These treatment projects are intended to extend the life of the pavement and avoid more costly repair or replacement of streets.

If you have questions or concerns regarding the Pavement Management Program please contact the City’s Engineering Department staff at 408.354.7635 or cityengineer@cityofmontesereno.org.

City-Wide Pavement Management Program

In May 2022 the City received the Pavement Management System Update Data Collection & Quality Management Report and Budget Options Report

The City uses StreetSaver®, a Pavement Management Software, to monitor pavement conditions, help prioritize streets requiring resurfacing, and estimate costs of treatments and rehabilitation. StreetSaver® uses Pavement Condition Index (PCI) to classify roads based on their condition. The PCI scale rate all streets from 0 to 100 (poor to excellent condition), depending on severity of pavement distress. Currently the City of Monte Sereno’s PCI average is 72, which is considered good. PCI values are one of the many factors used by StreetSaver® to help identify the appropriate resurfacing treatment for a given road.

Fall 2022 Pavement Improvement Project: Street Segments

Click here for the map  that shows the street segments that are part of the Fall 2022 Pavement Improvement Project. Construction is anticipated to begin in mid-September and last 3-4 weeks.

The 2022 Annual Pavement Improvement Project consists of various forms of pavement maintenance on several public streets (See Table 1). Depending upon the existing condition of the street, the project includes grinding and sweeping existing pavement, digout repair, patching, crack sealing, slurry sealing, asphalt overlay, adjusting utility boxes, monuments and manholes, traffic control and painting of pavement markings.


Neighborhood Street Improvement Program

The Neighborhood Street Improvement Program provides a baseline in establishing which residential streets segments should be considered for improvements. Combined with preliminary cost estimates for the design and construction of each segment, staff can reference this information when developing the Capital Improvement Program and City budgetary requirements.

No Neighborhood Street Improvement Projects are anticipated for construction during Fiscal Years 2022-2023 or 2023-2024.

During City Council’s February 1, 2022 meeting, Council provided direction to move forward with the design of improvements on Bruce and Vista Avenues.

The Winchester Blvd Class IV Bikeway Project was completed in-lieu of a Street Pavement Improvement Project in 2021. 

Neighborhood Street Improvement Projects

The 2018 Blanchard Drive Pilot Improvement Project consisted of the installation of frontage improvements and the resurfacing of the street along its entire length. The inclusion of the frontage improvements will greatly sustain the life of the roadway surface improvements.

The 2019 Neighborhood Street Improvement Project consisted of the installation of frontage improvements and the resurfacing of  Palos Verdes Drive, Via Vaquero, Equestrian Way.

The 2021/22 Neighborhood Street Improvement Project consisted of: (1) the construction curb and gutter on the full length of Clara Street and Zena Avenue, and portions of La Rinconada Drive and Natalye Road; and, (2) pavement improvements on the full length of Clara Street, Natalye Road, and Zena Avenue and portions of La Rinconada Drive.

Other Projects

The 2021/22 Winchester Blvd Class IV Bikeway Project, administered by the Town of Los Gatos, consisted of roadway resurfacing and the installation of protected bicycle lanes and minor pedestrian safety improvements on Winchester Boulevard between Blossom Hill Road and Albright Way.
