Faulconer Takes it to the Streets, Fills Potholes with Road Repair Crews

Mayor's Budgets Have Expanded Asphalt Crews, Doubled Miles of Street Repair

Thursday, November 12, 2015 - NEWS RELEASE

San Diego, CA – With street repairs on pace to double this year, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer rolled up his sleeves Thursday morning and worked alongside one of the City’s asphalt repair crews as they filled potholes in Pacific Beach.

After taking office in 2014, Mayor Faulconer increased funding for asphalt repairs and streamlined the system so repair crews go to every neighborhood throughout the City on a regular basis. The PDF icon schedule is posted online so residents know which days a crew will be visiting their City Council District.

The City’s asphalt repair crews fill roughly 27,000 potholes each year.

The pothole-filling is in addition to Mayor Faulconer’s plan to fix 1,000 miles of streets over five years. The City’s resurfacing program is fixing more than 300 miles of streets this fiscal year – double the amount completed when Faulconer took office – as part of the Mayor’s “One San Diego” budget.
