Dangerous Condition of California’s Local Streets and Roads Puts California Drivers at Risk, Poses Threat to Vehicle Safety
New Study Reveals that Close to $7.3 Billion Needed Annually to Make Streets and Roads Fully SafeThe biennial California Statewide Local Streets and Roads Needs Assessment is being released today and the results are alarming. The condition of the system that makes up more than 80 percent of California’s roadways is on the path to failure. The biennial survey confirms pavement conditions are declining and finds that existing funding levels are insufficient to properly fix and/or maintain streets, roads, bridges, sidewalks, storm drains and traffic signs. Deferring this crucial work, the report predicts, will likely double the cost of repairs in the future, and impedes efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants.
