The MTC Pavement Management System is a computer-assisted decision-making process designed to help cities and counties prevent pavement problems through judicious maintenance, and to diagnose and repair those that exist in a timely, cost-effective manner. This system is in use at 73 sites in Northern California cities, counties and other public agencies. The rest are users from outside the region — in Southern California and in eight states beyond California’s borders. They include universities, national forests and consulting firms that offer the MTC PMS to their clients.
