California Statewide Local Streets and Roads Needs Assessment
California's cities and counties maintain 81% of the paved miles in our state -- but don't receive nearly sufficient funding from the state to maintain this essential part of the California transportation network.
In October 2009, the first report in an ongoing series of comprehensive state-wide assessments of the local street and roads system was completed through the work of League of California Cities, California State Association of Counties, County Engineers Association of California, and other local transportation stakeholders. The findings were undeniable: The current condition places the local system at the edge of a cliff, and without a significant investment, the local streets and roads will fail.
An updated report on the assessment of the local streets and roads system was conducted in 2010. The report confirms that the pavement conditions are deteriorating at a rapid rate putting drivers safety at risk.
