Street Rehabilitation and Maintenance
The City is responsible for maintaining approximately 59 centerline miles of paved streets within Shasta Lake. Most general maintenance activities (pothole repairs, minor patching, culvert replacement) are completed by the Public Works Department, with larger rehabilitation and repair projects being bid out to contractors.
The City maintains a Pavement Management System (PMS) that tracks the condition of every paved street segment in the City’s street network. The PMS is updated approximately every five years, and includes the results of a visual assessment that is conducted using the following distress types:
- Alligator Cracking (Fatigue)
- Block Cracking
- Longitudinal and Transverse Cracking
- Patching and Utility Cut Patching
- Rutting and Depression
The PMS visual assessment results in each street segment being assigned a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) Rating. The PCI Rating, on a 100-1 scale with 100 being the best, allows staff to compare streets in terms of overall condition and determine what type of work is required to rehabilitate a given street. The average PCI Rating citywide was 58 in 2019.

Generally, the City’s street maintenance program is severely underfunded. The City receives approximately $300,000 annually that is available for paving projects, and there is currently a deferred maintenance backlog of approximately $27M. City staff pursues every available funding opportunity for infrastructure work and has been fairly successful over time.
