In 2013, the City of Hollywood retained the firm of Transmap Corporation to perform a comprehensive pavement management study. The study was undertaken to evaluate pavement conditions in Hollywood and to allow for the analysis and development of various rehabilitation and maintenance options with funding scenarios. Under the scope of this project, Transmap Corporation performed a detailed inventory of hard surfaces such as roadways, alleys and sidewalks. Pavement inspection are performed, existing pavement conditions are assessed and analyzed, future remaining pavement life is predicted and pavement management programs are developed. Upon completion, a total of 447 miles of City maintained hard surfaces were inspected and reviewed, creating the pavement management study. The study is used as a guide for the City’s roadway and alley reconstruction and resurfacing projects based on need together with coordination with the Department of Public Utility’s robust water and sewer rehabilitation program that is taking place. The City’s roadway and alley reconstruction and resurfacing efforts outside of the Public Utility project areas are led by the City’s Engineering Division. This report describes the steps taken in this project, the results of the field evaluations, and also compares the results of some potential roadway funding scenarios.
Pavement management is the practice of
planning for pavement repairs and maintenance with the goal of maximizing the
value and life of a pavement network. With a comprehensive study of road
conditions, the City may then better plan for future repairs, rehabilitation
