The quality of pavement is seen by many to be an indication of the quality of a city. Every year the city spends millions to repave and overlay our roads to meet these high standards. This is also an opportunity to re-stripe our roads so that they are more functional for all road users. In Encinitas we start with roads that are of the lowest Pavement Condition Index (PCI) and work our way up.
For 2017-2018 we awarded over $3.3 million for more than 25 road segments, a majority of which fall in to the “poor” category of between 25 and 50 PCI. Included in that list are three private roads, which are used for an emergency evacuation route for Olivenhain.
