Pavement Assessment & Maintenance Program
The City of Sebastian enlisted the professional engineering consulting team from Pavement Management Group (PMG) to conduct a city wide pavement assessment and prepare a 6-year Pavement Management maintenance program in 2018. As it is industry standard to re-assess Pavement Condition Indices approximately every three years, PMG has completed a second round of reviews in 2023.
Pavement Condition Report
Sebastian’s Pavement Condition Report was developed using industry standard inspection practices and was done so in an objective fashion. PMG is an engineering firm specializing only in roadway pavement inspection/evaluation and maintenance procedures. They do not provide pavement preservation, maintenance or repair services - which helps ensure their report is non-biased.
Asphalt roadways begin to deteriorate the day after it was paved. Weather and traffic affect the wear and tear on roadway surfaces. Freshly paved roadways are expected to last 15 to 20 years before needing major repair or replacement. Best management practices tell us that if roads receive preventative maintenance, they will last longer without the need for more expensive repairs.
Pavement Management Final Project Report
Please read the Pavement Management Final Project Report as it explains how our roadway pavement was graded using a Pavement Condition Index (PCI). The PCI is an all-important score that indicates the pavement’s condition, which in turn gives guidance as to how needy a roadway is to receive preservation or repairs. The City’s goal is to maintain all roads to a PCI score higher than 50. This will be accomplished through our upcoming treatment plans. Look back for website updates.

Road Rehabilitation Plans
Per the most recent roads assessment a tentative seven year plan was approved for road rehabilitation. It is industry practice to re-evaluate roadway conditions every three to four years and the next re-evaluation may call for changes to the plan. Please revisit this page for plans or updates. We are currently moving forward with the 2022 and 2023 Approved Plans.
