In 1993 the Metropolitan Government Pavement Engineers Council (MGPEC)
was established to represent all of the cities and counties in the DRCOG (Denver Regional Council of Governments) planning
area. Our goal is to improve the quality of pavements throughout the Denver-Metropolitan region, and
lower the life-cycle cost of pavement maintenance at the local level through the use of standardized paving materials and
uniform design, construction and maintenance practices.
MGPEC is an example of partnerships that are accomplishing activities that will advance improvements in how we manage
our infrastructure on a day-to-day basis. MGPEC efforts have been recognized nationally and internationally.
MGPEC actively promotes pavement management
programs for all local governments in the Denver-Metro area and works to develop positive working relationships between local
government engineers who are responsible for pavements in those areas.
In this past year MGPEC has accomplished a large number of goals that will benefit all of us as either
taxpayers or the traveling public.
public/private industry task forces were formed to evaluate the uniform specifications as we continue to strive for the best
Our membership continues to grow each year as our standards are utilized by more and more entities.
