PASO ROBLES, Calif. – On Tuesday, March 5th, the Paso Robles City Council agreed to a plan to repair many of the city's deteriorating roads. Before reconstruction can begin on the approximately 15 miles of roads listed, the council will next need to determine a number of important factors. Those include: determining what type of repair is needed for each road, the scope and cost of each project, repair sequence, soliciting bids and then actual construction. The Council also approved an extension of planned improvements on 21st Street to include the segment Spring Street to Vine Street. For more information on the road repair plans and other agenda items discussed at the meeting, see story below.

We have the first multi-year road repair plan (attached). It includes approximately 15 miles of major roads – roads which a large portion of the community use daily to access schools, homes, businesses and highways. Now begins the work to (1) determine type of repair needed for each road segment included, (2) civil engineers design/specify needed repairs, (3) estimate cost for each repair, (4) report repair scope and cost to Council, (5) Council determine repair sequence based upon cost, available funds, and construction conflicts/timing (if any), (6) solicit competitive bids for the highest/first priority repairs, and (7) construct. Then repeat Step 6 each year until the list is complete. Upon nearing list completion, develop a second multi-year road repair plan and repeat steps 1-7.
Additionally, Council approved extension of planned improvements (currently under way) on 21st Street to include the segment from Spring to Vine. So, the reconstruction will now expend from Vine Street on the west across to Riverside Avenue on the east!
