2021 Road Paving Projects:
Pavement Management System
The City of Portsmouth performs an annual Pavement Management System review, assessing road conditions and budget requirements to plan road paving program work.
The review is conducted by Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (VHB), surveying 25% of Portsmouth’s total 104.2-mile, City-maintained road network each year. In 2018, VHB performed a detailed inspection of the condition of the pavement on all the City maintained roads and created a database of information which can be viewed, edited and analyzed using VHB’s RoadManager™ software. The data is linked to the City’s Geographic Information System (GIS), so that thematic maps can be created to display any of the information in the database.
