San Diego - On the road to repairing 1,000 miles of streets over five years, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer and City Councilmember Scott Sherman were on hand as crews resurfaced Allied Road - one of the worst streets in San Diego.
The resurfacing of pockmarked Allied Road - located between Mission Gorge Road and Greenbrier Avenue in Allied Gardens - is among the more than 300 miles of roads that will be repaired during the current fiscal year. That is double the amount of road repair completed the year Faulconer took office as mayor.
"This is an example of the type of road work we'll see across the city as we repair 1,000 miles of streets," Mayor Faulconer said. "This year's budget doubled the amount of road repair we're doing annually so neighborhoods like Allied Gardens will have smoother, safer streets."
In 2011, Allied Road received an Overall Condition Index (OCI) rating of 7.45, one of the lowest scoring streets in the city on the 0-to-100 scale. The road is about one-third of a mile long and the resurfacing project - which was waiting for utility undergrounding work to be completed - is expected to take two days.
"This is by far the worst road in District 7," said Councilmember Sherman, who represents the district. "This repair of Allied Road was a top priority for me when I first took office. It is exciting to finally see work begin on this important project."
