Every few years, the Engineering Division conducts a Pavement Management Study (PMS) to determine which streets need rehabilitation, based on the amount and severity of pavement distresses. Because the number of streets needing rehabilitation exceeds budget money available, only a few selected streets throughout Monterey Park are rehabilitated each year. Depending on the funding sources available, some streets may not be eligible for immediate paving.
The 2016 Street Resurfacing project is partially funded by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) Rubberized Pavement Grant (TRP5-14-0115). The total number of used tires that was diverted from the waste stream was approximately 17,619 and were all collected and purchased in the State of California.
