Work begins on San Diego street repaving project

Work began Monday on a $47 million project to repave 134 miles of San Diego streets and slurry-seal another 147 miles, Mayor Jerry Sanders announced.

“Keeping the streets in good condition is one of the most fundamental jobs of city government,” Sanders said. “I’m enormously proud to kick off a project that will benefit so many people in so many ways.”

Work began Monday on a section of Mt. Etna Drive in Clairemont and the entire project will be completed in summer 2011, according to Alex Roth, a spokesman in the mayor’s office.

The project is being paid for through a $103 million bond for deferred maintenance projects.

Repaving work will be generally reserved for those streets in the most disrepair and involves grinding up the old road and overlaying new asphalt, according to the mayor’s office. Slurry-sealing will be done on streets that are not as badly damaged and need only a surface coating of asphalt.

The project got underway less than a week after a survey of San Diego citizens by the Independent Budget Analyst’s Office found street resurfacing a top priority.
