Pavement Rehab & Street Cut Moratorium

The City plans for its major pavement rehabilitation 5 years in advance to coordinate for large scale rehabilitation projects across the City. Day to day pothole repair is responded to immediately through the City's Maintenance Division. The City continues to have a backlog of streets needing rehabilitation due to a near decade of lack of funding for such work. However, considerable advancement continues to be made in improving pavement conditions as the City has conducted annual pavement rehabilitation projects since 2018. The information on this page outlines planned work for the coming 5 years and past major rehabilitation work within the City. Additionally, the most recent comprehensive Pavement Management Report for the City is available here:
- 2022/23 Pavement Management Report


The City funds the capital pavement rehabilitation program primarily through the City's Streets Fund which receives revenues from State Gas Taxes (Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017), VTA Measure B 2016 Sales Tax, various grant funds, the City's General Fund, and various other smaller funding sources.

Priority Rehabilitation 

The City prioritizes use of its limited funding in the repair of the City’s street using the following criteria:

  • Repairing and maintaining arterial and collector roadways ahead of residential streets. 
  • Pavement condition through review of the pavement condition index for each specific street segment.
  • Grouping roadways that are adjacent to limit impacts to residents and achieve cost savings related to mobilization costs.
  • Repairing roadways that are ongoing safety issues.
  • Repairing street segments that reduce the ongoing and repeated maintenance needs for the City.

Pavement Moratorium

The City finds that any cut into street pavement significantly degrades the roadway and that restoration methods exist to restore the street to its pre-excavation condition. All streets within the City of Morgan Hill which have received any type of pavement resurfacing or reconstruction are not permitted for any excavation or utility cut for a period of five (5) years from project completion. Date of project completion is the date of the filing of the project Notice of Acceptance by the Office of the City Engineer.

Exceptions to this policy are as follows:

  1. Emergencies which endanger life or property.
  2. Interruption of essential utility service.
  3. Work that is mandated by City, County, State, or Federal legislation.
  4. Service for buildings where no other feasible means of providing service exists.
  5. Other situations deemed by the City Engineer to be in the best interest of the general public.

For all exceptions granted, other means (boring, etc.) shall be used to limit the amount of street cuts to the minimum necessary to complete the work.  The City shall provide specific restoration requirements for exception work granted as approved by the City Engineer. Companies that perform non-permitted work that violates this policy shall restore roadway to the limits, using the method determined by the City Engineer.  At a minimum the restoration shall be from edge of pavement to edge of pavement.

Upcoming and Completed Pavement Rehabilitation Projects

Note: Planned rehabilitation is based on funding availability and may change. Reductions in funding or increases in costs may delay planned rehabilitation work. Urgent rehabilitation needs that arise may also delay planned rehabilitations.
