Street Resurfacing and Pavement Management
The City of Greenville owns and maintains approximately 260 center line miles of streets. A primary responsibility of the Engineering Division is managing the City’s Pavement Management Program, which includes street resurfacing, restriping, and maintenance treatments.

Pavement Condition Index (PCI)
As part of this program, streets are typically assessed on a 5-year basis and provided a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) rating between 20 and 100. A PCI rating of 20 indicates the worse condition and a rating of 100 represents the best condition. Factors considered in determining the PCI rating of a street segment include, but are not limited to the streets functional classification, traffic volumes, surface condition, riding condition, and structural condition.
Pavement Preservation refers to programs and activities employing a network level, long-term strategy that enhances pavement performance by using an integrated, cost-effective set of practices that extend pavement life, improve safety, and meet road user expectations. This includes minor rehabilitation and maintenance treatments that can be employed on streets throughout their lifetime and are intended to extend the life of the pavement or slow down the rate of deterioration they experience. These treatments can help raise the overall PCI and lower the overall life cycle cost of City streets.
Street Resurfacing and Rehabilitation
Streets that have deteriorated beyond the point of maintenance and repair can be selected for street resurfacing or major rehabilitation. A street resurfacing project usually includes some combination of full depth patching, milling, and asphalt overlays. Rehabilitation projects are selected for roads that have significant subgrade issues and require the complete replacement or reclamation of a street section.
Prioritization and Funding
Street resurfacing and maintenance is evaluated and prioritized based on an analysis of the PCI, street classification, development & utility scheduling, current market prices, and available budget. Once all of these factors have been taken into consideration, the City selects road segments and treatments that will provide the most cost effective method to improve the overall condition of City streets.
The resurfacing and pavement preservation programs are funded through a combination of the City’s Capital Improvement Program and the Greenville Legislative Delegation Transportation Committee’s (GLDTC) Municipal Match Resurfacing Program (MMRP). Streets to be funded through the MMRP are managed by the GLDTC’s program manager. Roads that are not funded through this program are managed by City Engineering personnel.
How to know if your street has been selected
When a street is selected for improvements, this website will be updated with a tentative schedule for each selected road. This schedule will also indicate which entity is managing the work. All timelines posted to this website are subject to change due to weather, utilities, etc. Due to this, the City will post all scheduling updates on this website. Homeowners who live on one of the selected streets are encouraged to subscribe for updates.
One to two days before paving begins, contractors will post signs on the streets or pass out door hangers indicating that work is about to begin. While work is being done on the streets, residents are asked not to park or place yard debris in the street.
