The purpose of the City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is to identify CIP projects and funding sources, to strategically plan and prioritize projects within a budget to maximize the efficient use of funds and to preserve existing publicly-owned property and infrastructure. The City Council adopted the 5 year CIP program in March 2014. The links below include the City Council staff report dated March 17, 2014, the powerpoint presentation from that same meeting and the CIP plan itself.

Pavement Management Program
The City most recently completed its Pavement Management Program update in June 2021. A Pavement Management Program (PMP) is a planning tool to track the past, present and future pavement conditions and street maintenance and rehabilitation projects in a central database, utilizing engineering software to forecast pavement maintenance needs and assist in budgeting for street maintenance. The PMP ensures that the City is prioritizing roadway repairs to best serve the community in a cost effective manner. Per the PMP, the City’s street conditions are measured according to its Pavement Condition Index (PCI). The City has completed a number of street improvement projects over the past 3 years. Due to these improvements, the City’s overall street condition network has improved since the last PMP in 2017 which demonstrates the City’s commitment to improving street pavement conditions. The table below shows the improvement in PCI since 2011.
|Street Type||PCI in 2021||PCI in 2017||PCI in 2014||PCI in 2011|
|Arterial Street Network
An arterial street is defined as typically having four or more through travel lanes.
These include Pacific Coast Highway, Lomita Boulevard, Crenshaw Boulevard, Western Avenue and Palos Verdes Drive North.
|Local Street Network
Local streets are subordinate to the basic circulation system and consist primarily of residential streets throughout the City.
